The minute a person comes in contact with a horse they are teaching it something, good, bad or otherwise…

By breaking down each goal to the fundamentals you help the horse to understand what it is being asked of him. We find where miscommunication is stemming from and build from there. The program focuses on how to support your horse by building a frame of mind where the horse is focused on you and on the task you need to complete. I help you build a good work ethic with your horse. Through clear communication your horse will be able to carry himself physically, mentally and emotionally thereby creating a magical harmony between the two of you… when you listen to him he’ll listen to you.
I dedicate my life to helping people find Joy with their horses!
I want people to smile when they are around their horse, not feel stressed or depressed. I want to help them to understand that they can do right by their horse and show them how to accomplish the connection.
