I have an understanding for horses that is only aquired through years of experience. I have trained and competed across many diciplines therefore giving me a keen eye for trouble shooting and understanding how different people and different horses learn.
I enjoy teaching people how to better communicate w their horse. Watching progress earned through hard work and dedication.
As a parent you want to find a trainer who actually knows what they are doing. How to talk to a student but also have a real knowledge of horses.Stephanie taught my daughter so much more than just riding ( life lessons) she will take with her in every aspect of life . Just starting out or have been riding for years you will learn from Stephanie.
Stephanie is a patient teacher who installed confidence in me. I learned so much more from her than just riding a horse . Because of Stephanie I am a well accomplished rider. I know how to not only ride but also how to read and care for a horse. I started riding with Stephanie at 10 years old and I am now 17. I have had other training here and there but I always go back to the fundamentals I learned from Stephanie.
She's a no nonsense instructor/teacher. Her lessons are packed full of information geared towards the level of the rider. She's very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain everything. She's hands on; no sitting back telling at you ..... She talks directly to you. She's a current rider, always perfecting herself to further her ability to help her students. She's fantastic!
Evaluate the riders and horses ability together and separate. Figure out what their goals are. Come up with a plan of great exercises to ensure progress.
Ive been a professional trainer and rider for 27 years. I’ve worked for different trainers and have owned my own operations. I’ve continued to learn myself under some of the greats such as Joe Sandvan and Jane Savoy.
My fees are standard and I can be flexible for individual situations.
I started teaching because it was the next organic step for me. At the time, I was just 17.
Ive worked with all ages and skill levels.
The most fun is watching my students compete well. Enjoying the whole process from start to finish. Watching the hard work and commitment pay off when they have good rides and feel on top of the world. Amazing ways of building confidence.
Make sure communication is at the fore front. There are many different ways to describe something, so it’s important the student is understanding the concept. People and horses alike, learn in different ways, so it’s important for an instructor to be able to adjust depending on the student. Have fun and love being around your horse!
How many years experience they have and what have been their accompolishments.
