About this pro

Hands on, indivudualized horse back riding lessons for the first time beginners all the way up to seasoned advanced riders. 

I love going to work every day. Riding and training horses, and working with the people who love the animals as much as I do makes me the luckiest person in the world.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Students are asked to arrive 30 mins before their lesson time to learn the basics of grooming their horse and saddling up for their riding lesson. Then we will discuss the basic rules and safety precautions of working around horses in our busy riding school. Lessons are half an hour, directly tailored to each students ability level and goals.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

15 years experience riding with horses

Rode on Albion College Hunt seat team

SafeSport Trained

What types of students have you worked with?

I have worked with young students who are riding for the first time, ages 4 and 5 up to mature riders who are coming back to riding after many years, or even adult beginners. All types of students are welcome!

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Try out multiple different stables before you make a choice. Take tours, ask questions, and find the barn that is the best fit for you!

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

-What are your riding goals?

-How much time and money are you willing to commit to the sport?

-What is your learning style?

-Is there anything your instructors can be made aware of to better help you learn and enjoy your time at the barn?
