I am a classically trained dressage rider with over 30 years of teaching experience. I am passionate about what I do and believe dressage instruction can bring about a deeper and more insightful partnership between horse and rider regardless of discipline. I teach beginners (first time ever on a horse lol) through advanced riders and beginners (children and adults) are very welcome and encouraged! You can ride one of 1my personal horses or I will cheerfully travel to you.
I love how energetic and positive she is. I believe she has the interest of the rider and the horse in mind at all times. Very kind.
Laura has a great eye and she's a very positive and encouraging instructor! Her passion is evident in her teaching!
Wonderful Dressage instructor for any level. Laura is extremely knowledgeable and very passionate about teaching. Her lessons are definitely geared toward the riders experience and goals, she is currently working with both myself and my daughter and we couldn’t be happier with our experience. My daughter is a lower level event rider working on polishing her dressage skills and I’m an old event rider wanting to focus more on dressage and we’ve found her to be the perfect fit.
Really knowledgeable, honest, sympathetic, and supportive. Listens to you and your concerns but also gives you just enough push to move towards your goals. She explains things clearly and logically and makes you feel like she's truly invested in your journey. An overall lovely person and a true representation of what dressage and this sport should be about.
I generally begin with an unmounted discussion of the riders goals and wishes then proceed to a mounted asssessement. For brand new riders, I begin with an introduction to the horse, grooming, tack and then a mounted session with an emphasis on the proper position and use of aids.
I am fortunate to have been around horses all my life and have been able to ride with some wonderful instructors. I feel privileged to pass on the extradordinary knowlege I received from them.
A private lesson at my farm is $55, an off farm lesson within thirty minutes of my home is also $55...anything further there is a nominal travel fee.
