I strive to provide my students with solid skills so they can become confident riders no matter what discipline they shoose to specialize in (or even if they choose to only ride recreationally).
I have worked in the horse industry in numerous environments including boarding barns, race stables, and rescue facilties. My focus in riding and my teaching philosophy has been molded by the wisdom and knowledge of my mentors over the years. I stress slow steady improvement using hard work and dedication over the use of gimmicky equipment.

I enjoy working with any student who is interested in horses, but in the past I have worked with both children and adults (beginner, intermediate, and advanced).
