I mentor horse owners to build their foundational skills and learn to communicate with their equine partners, creating safe and strong horse-human relationships.
Improving the communication and relationship between horses and their humans is my passion. Quite often, I hear the phrase, “My horse is great except _____________’.
I dove deep into learning and understanding the sciences behind WHY my horses were showing bad and sometimes dangerous behaviors. This education allowed me to change my mindset around how I could and should train to change behaviors.
This greatly influences how I teach and train. Ever shifting theories and techniques allow me to train for optimal learning for horse and human."
My deisre is to enable people and horses to learn together in a way that preserves the beauty and the spirit of the horse and allows horse and human to discover a shared joy which enriches the lives of both.
“The work I do and teach provides straightforward, evidence based facts and information on helping people understand their horses and their behaviors.
I encourage a 'whole horse' holistic approach to care and training to ensure the emotional, physical, mental and spiritual well-being, for both horse and human."
