HoofBeats on the Heart
About this pro
I provide an introduction to horses that is safe, relaxing and low stress. I specialize in anxious and beginning riders of all ages with focus on relaxation, rhythm, balance and core development. I also offer animal assisted therapy and pony carting lessons. I can take you from your first hands-on with a horse all the way up through exhibiting and competing if that is what you would like to do. We will cover safety, health and care, rhythm and body control. And most importantly we will help you experience the fun and joy of an equine partnership. I love sharing something I am passionate about and seeing the connection people experience with these amazing animals. I came to horses late in life as an anxious rider and in poor physical shape. Eight years later I now cannot imagine my life without riding. I used to have debilitating arthritis in my neck from long hours in front of a computer at my day job. Since riding, not only do I feel fitter physically and mentally, but my loss of work time has been cut in half, I feel more confident, at peace and energized. All of my horses are registered therapy horses.
