What is your typical process for working with a new student?
I generally let the student show me their skill level as well as discuss any training difficulties and then start teaching from there, making suggestions to improve what they have already developed. If they are brand new to riding I help them learn how to take care of the horse, mounting and take their first few steps on horseback.
What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
I have been teaching lessons and training horses for over 10 years. I am Silver medalist Dressage trainer and behavior modification applying horse/human psychology. I was also an Equine specialist certified for the EAGALA Program for equine therapy,
