Training should never be so serious that we lose our sense of awe for the horse.

Lessons, training, clinics and more

To better serve your horse and to produce superior results, we take a limited amount of training horses. We focus on the whole horse, with special attention to physical balance, diet, alignment and suppleness, and rider balance and awareness.

Horsemanship with a dressage focus for every horse and rider – learn to get balanced and create solid partnerships, no matter what saddle you’re riding in. My goal as a teacher is not to tell the student what to do, but to teach riders feel and to learn to interpret their horses expressions and movements. Lessons focus on teaching riders to communicate effectively, observe and compare what works and doesn’t work for their horse, and to set up situations in which learning is easy for the horse. Teaching riders to be advocates for their horses means learning to carefully observe their surroundings, their horse, and themselves, and to gather an awareness of how their moods, physical fitness, and decisions affect their horses.

We welcome riders of all disciplines willing to undertake the journey of introspection and dedication required to be their best self for their horse.

Offering private or group sessions for all disciplines and breeds. In clinics, people can come together to improve their relationships with their horse, learn how to improve their timing and feel, and take home a new awareness to improve their day to day lives with their horses. Clinics offer a fun, low pressure way to learn along with other riders, expose horses to things they may not see at home in a safe, controlled environment, set up situations to improve and expand comfort zones, and to learn from watching other riders as well.

Rehabilitation: Postural and/or Mental

Is your horse troubled, stiff, crooked, uncomfortable, or struggling in some way? This is a thorough, whole-horse approach to helping bring your partner peace and alignment through their bodies. Lame horses are made sound through correct in hand work and/or riding, and troubled horses are brought to calm by developing happy partnerships. We’ll take a look at their diet, hoof balance, dental balance, address physical issues, and every aspect that makes up the whole picture.

We have an excellent team of vets, farriers, dentists, and body workers here to serve you and your horse, and to help bring your horse to the place they deserve to be.

To create truly lasting changes, rehab cases require a minimum year long commitment.

Helping horses and riders find each other in the center is my passion
