Frequently asked questions
What is your typical process for working with a new student?
Initial evaluation consists of a conversation where the new student has a chance to explain riding goals and ask any questions and share areas of focus. I ask the rider to ride/warmup their horse and together we develop a training plan.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I am also a teacher of trauma informed gentle yoga as well as having decades of experience in animal rescue.
Do you have a standard pricing system for your lessons? If so, please share the details here.
I charge $100 per lesson at my farm and charge a farm call to travel elsewhere which varies with the distance traveled.
How did you get started teaching?
Gerd Zuther of November Hill Farm, an early employer and mentor encouraged me to start teaching in 1993 and I never stopped!
What types of students have you worked with?
Riders of all ages and levels, dressage, event, pleasure riders, and hunter/jumpers. My specialty is young horses but I love using the power of dressage to work with horses of all ages, breeds, and abilities.
