Vanessa is an exceptional trainer. She balances high standards with compassion. She is skilled at setting clear objectives and helping you achieve them. I am an adult beginner who loves horses, rode as a kid, and finally have the opportunity to invest in riding. Coming into dressage as an adult is daunting mentally and physically. Vanessa breaks it down into solvable pieces. She is also a great advisor for sourcing tack and finding horses.

I've owned my horse for 6 years, and taken lessons off and on for that time. I've learned more in 8 lessons with Vanessa than I have in those 6 years. I've learned more about me, my horse and dressage! I feel I'm being pushed a little out of my box, trying things I haven't tried, which has helped my confidence. I look forward to lessons, and love practicing between. I feel I've found a friend and trainer all in one!

Vanessa is a gifted trainer with an immeasurably thorough knowledge of classical horsemanship and equine physiology. She is brilliant and explaining both the 'how' and the 'why' of riding technique in such a way that her students are able to absorb so much more than just 'riding the position.' She promotes a safe and positive attitude at all times. I'm thrilled to work with her!

Vanessa is an accomplished rider and an wonderful instructor. Her understanding of the mechanics of effective riding is so helpful. She teaches not only the ‘how’ but the ‘why’ which is essential to good instruction. I highly recommend her to any serious student of dressage.
