What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?
always! I continue to ride with top instructors; I read, and I constantly learn by teaching others.
How did you get started doing this type of work?
I always loved horses and I had an opportunity to purchase a farm and live my dream. Who would not want to do that?!
What types of customers have you worked with?
Teach horseback riding....at all levels. Train horses...at all levels. As a certified ICP USEA instructor my training has a great foundation and is based on safety, respect for the horse and rider, and having fun!
Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I have a new student, who is not new to jumping, that was just introduced into the world of eventing with 2 cross country lessons. She had a blast and never knew how fun eventing was!
What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Safety first! Be sure you have a trainer that is thorough in teaching the basics of balance and leadership. Look for a trainer that is ICP certified. For children: get them involved in pony club! It is a great program
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
I run my business with integrity. It is important to me that I do what I say I will; I do not swindle, deceive or lie to my clients. With horses, safety first is the most important thing. I teach all my riders that safety comes from balance and leadership. We have a safe, fun, relaxing place at Goldspirit farm because of these two ideals that are important to me.
