Approach

"I teach a positive, progressive approach to riding to enhance harmony and balance between horse and rider and improve the natural basic gaits of your horse.  My goal is to develop the six basic aspects in the training of the horse—rhythm, suppleness, contact, impulsion, straightness, collection.

My style is to develop a friendly, fun and effective atmosphere for teaching and training dressage. Together, we will tailor a program specifically to you and your horse based on your experience, level and goals."
