|Bio : I fell in love with horses during my first pony ride at the age of five and have never looked back. That love has led to raising, training, and showing Paint and Pinto horses to numerous State, National, and World Show Championships. Riding with Richard Shrake has helped me to put that finishing touch on many of those winners. The Resistance Free program has given me the knowledge to recognize the horse’s potential ability and that has been a great benefit when selecting horses for purchase for myself and my clients.
Using that knowledge I have successfully located horses for riders to create that winning horse show team. Many of my students have gone on to successful horse show careers including one of my current students with wins at The American Royal Youth Horse Show in addition to winning numerous High-Point Awards.
Using the Resistance Free techniques, I specialize in creating positive horse experiences for riders of all ages and levels of ability stressing safety and fun while helping the student develop new horsemanship skills with a greater level of confidence. In addition to my Horsemanship Lesson Program, I also offer Birthday Parties, Day Camps, Boy and Girl Scout Badge Events, and Horse Sense Clinics for those new to horses. New offerings are Winning with Horsepower which consists of positive and rewarding horse experiences for cancer survivors, and Mother-Daughter lessons.
My goal is to help everyone enhance their skills, fulfill their dreams, and develop that special rewarding relationship with their horse.
