I started working with Cathy a year ago, when a group of friends needed someone to fill in a lesson spot. I was mainly interested in riding my Canadian mare, MaeMae, as she is the one who responds well to lessons. After one lesson, I realized that my Canadian gelding, Dudley, who historically has hated ring work and being asked to do anything that is not his idea, would like Cathy's style. So I started lessons on both the following week. It has been a wonderful journey. I rode as a child, but hadn't had lessons since then. I needed help with my own riding as well as with asking my horses to do things. Cathy has an endless supply of expertise, yet she can discern in the first few minutes of a lesson what a horse needs and what the rider needs. She breaks things down into manageable chunks for my horses and I, yet challenges and pushes us at the same time. I have learned so much over the past year and look forward to learning so much more. Dudley -- the reticent one-- won two blue ribbons in his first dressage show this weekend. Two for two. Thanks to Cathy's instruction.

I offer individualized lessons and training for each horse/rider combination. I am a level IV centered riding instructor, a CHA master instructor and clinician. I teach non-abusive principles based on correct classical approaches to fulfill rider's goals. I also teach dressage, hunter-jumper, western and pleasure disciplines.

I have years of experience with horses under master horseman Bill Cameron. I ride miles of flat sandy trails, rolling hills, and through desert landscape on top bred performance horses. I do private lessons in a safe environment, offering safety first lessons to all ages. Lesson horses will be supplied or bring your own horse to fix any challenges and communication blocks you may have with your horse.
I show passionate riders who struggle with traditional riding and training methods, how to get their joy back in the saddle, improve their riding skills and use the lightest cues to communicate to their horses. One of the great things is that the human-horse relationship improves if the rider learn new ways to ask their horse.
