About

I love to give riding lessons and help riders build confidence in themselves and their beloved horse partners! I also enjoy starting horses of all kinds to ride. My absolute favorite, of course, is ground training foals from birth up. I am flexible with experience in Western pleasure, English pleasure and saddleseat. I also have some experience in driving but has not been steady. I love teaching children how to safely enjoy being around horses. Horses are my passion, and I love sharing my knowledge with others!

My daughter was able to ride with Kelsey at KJ Equestrian this summer. The indoor was wonderful for the Wisconsin winters. The horses were healthy and well-cared for. Kelsey is just the right kind of trainer: calm and encouraging. I highly recommend.

The main thing I LOVE about Idylwood is that the focus is on the horse. The training I'm receiving is definitely contributing to an improvement in my skills, but first and foremost I am asked to be a horsewoman, not just a horse rider. From the first moment I am with the horse I'll be riding, Jaime helps me be a better partner to the horse by coaching me to think about the animal: its state of mind, its comfort level, its habits, its particular personality. I am looking forward to a long, productive, and satisfying future at Idylwood - and I sincerely hope that whatever horse I'm riding will always feel the same about me!

About

Having grown up on a nature-based horse farm and riding school in rural NY, I have an instinctive and primal love of horses. My mother started our USPC, the Garrison Pony Club, and by the age of 12, I was helping her teach riding lessons and summer camps. I earned my B rating at the age of 14 and decided to slow down when my horse was diagnosed with navicular. I'm very empathetic to the horse's experience and continue to bring a sensitive eye and heart into the arena. As an adult, I studied movement arts and therapies, namely dance, martial arts, yoga, authentic movement, and the Alexander technique. All of which inform my focus as a rider, trainer, and instructor. I provide group, semi-private, or private lessons in equitation, Dressage or jumping. I enjoy helping people understand and be sensitive to their horse's body language and develop a collaborative working relationship with their partner. Must provide own horse.

I have been playing clarinet and bass clarinet for about 12 years and contrabass clarinet for about five. I own all three. I am studied with Dr. John Anderson, retired head professor of clarinet at the U of M, and Dr. Leigh Wakefield, professor of clarinet at Concordia College. I have participated in the MN All State Band and U of M honor band for 3 years, Concordia Honor Band for 3 years, the Concordia band, plus many more honor bands and college ensembles. I work with people of all ages and work to better their soprano/bass or even contrabass clarinet skills.
