About this pro

I am a very patient teacher that is all about your progress at your speed. I teach in a way where the goal is to ride a happy relaxed horse in self balance with a rider in self balance using minimal aids and muscle power. To get to that point it's all about correct biomechanics of rider and horse.

22+ years of experince teaching/training

Parelli profesional 2004-2010

ridden with: Terry Wright, Walter Zettl, Heather Blitz, Mary Wanless, Jennifer Truett 

I love watching the changes in horse and rider and the aha moments when pieces click into place.

    Anja is the best riding instructor I've ever had. She has insights into riding that I have never heard before. She is a very caring gentle person. I am a plus size woman and Anja was very accepting of my size. I believe she wants to help everyone better their riding experiences. Highly recommend!

  • Terry Wright

    I know Anja to be a kind, disciplined rider with the ability to compassionately help horses come into balance both physically and emotionally. She has a solid understanding of the bio mechanics of both horse and rider and the ability to bring harmony and grace to both. You would be privileged to have her as your instructor in the art of horsemanship.
