Horses have always been Bekah's passion and from a very young age she knew that she wanted to help people using horses as the catalyst. While in college, she volunteered for a specialty program that took her to England to attend the Talland School of Equitation. There she studied Classical Dressage, Equitation and Eventing from several Olympic and internationally competitive riders. Bekah received her bachelor's degree in Equine Business Management with concentrations in teaching, training and therapeutic riding. Bekah holds instructor certifications through BHS (British Horse Society), PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship), ARIA (American Riding Instructors Association) and was a Licensed 3 Star Parelli Professional.
Bekah enjoys Dressage, Eventing, Show Jumping, Endurance, working cows, driving as well helping "problem" horses through issues, and equipping young horses with the foundation that they need for success in any discipline. She has over 20 years experience training, teaching, starting horses and working with problem horses. With such a wide variety in her background and hundreds of horses handled, she has a lot to offer her students.

We recommend that students start with private lessons so they can get a good foundation of safety and control before joining a group. We are different than most lesson barns, in that we focus on learning the nature of horses and building positive communication over a specific sport focus. We teach both western and english riding and our lesson focus is determined by the goals of each individual student.
