Teaching and Training Credentials:
I have over 15 years of teaching and training experience. I
provide riders with solid basics in thier riding skills that enable them to work more effectively with thier horses.
I teach and train from a dressage philosophy with an emphasis on correctness in performance and harmony between horse and
I have trained under a variety of instructors and trainers including Bill Solyntes, Laura
Fraser, Stuart Metcalf, Fred Kalper, Mary Schenck, Ulrich Schmidtzand, Marlene Schneider. I competed successfully on
the western WSCA circuit through my youth and early years. Since then my training has focused more exclusively
on Dressage and Combined Training.
I have a special fondness for kids and beginner riders. I like to make
riding productive, fun, and safe for my students. I enjoy working with the competitive rider and have had many of my
students and horses that I have trained recieve high honors in thier chosen discipline. I can provide pony club and
4-h clinics at an affordable fee. References available upon request.
