    I hired Kat to train my horse as well as myself. I would just like to say that my horse has already done a complete 180! Kat is an amazing trainer. She is definitely "for the horse". Kat inspires me to not only work hard but, to also better myself as an equestrian. I have already recommended her to several people.

    Kat is so kind and patient with my 6 year old. My daughter has learned so much and has gained a lot of confidence on the horse.
