    I provide lessons to students ranging in ages from five to 65, who have a wide range of goals, from those who want to learn to ride for fun and relaxation, to those who wish to compete. I provide training services at my home barn or at a clients facility and offer a variety of training packages, specializing in OTTB retraining and "problem horses". I specialize each lesson and training plan to the specific student and horse, allowing them to work on what they need to work on to improve and not leave them feeling stagnant. This allows me to go at the speed best suited for each individual, so every student feels safe and confident. I think that the most important thing when learning to ride is communication between the instructor and the student. I want my students/ clients to all feel comfortable asking questions and speaking up if they are uneasy or not quite understanding a specific topic. There is no "right speed" to learn, everyone goes at a different pace, which I encourage. I love that I get to work with horses every day, and fulfill others dreams of learning to ride. Some of my students are older and have been waiting to have the time/ money to ride their whole lives, which makes it that much more of an amazing experience. I also enjoy retraining off track Thoroughbreds and giving them a second chance at life with a new career and owner. I feel as if many OTTB's get a bad rap and have sold/ rehomed many OTTBs to students and clients who thought they would never ride, let alone own, an ex racehorse. There is no better feeling for me than finding a horse a forever home with a great owner and watching them progress and learn together.

    My work stands out from others because I am one of the few stables that has a structured riding lesson program fitted to everyone's needs while also teaching traditional horsemanship with each lesson. I give all my students a rock solid foundation for if they want to move onto showing, training, or just continue advancing their skills. I love being around the horses all the time, and teaching about them. I love sharing my passion for them with others and love seeing the partnership that develops between horse and rider as they advance.

  • A Gray Day Training

    First and foremost, my goal is to identify and define the owner's objectives and create a plan to meet them. My focus is on creating a calm steady relationship with the human in the alpha status. Ultimately I wish to achieve clear communication between the horse and owner. Allowing a steady relationship and successful achievement of goals. The owner gains the ability to address horse issues on their own, and engage in any given horse activity with confidence in the outcome. The very best part of my job is taking a horse that is on the verge of being useless and turning them around. Giving them a job, a life, and a purpose they can do and understand. At the same time, giving the owner the answer they have been seeking and the tools to fix their own problems.

Details
I have ridden occasionally for many years, but have never had any formal training. I'm hoping to gain some basic knowledge in horse handling, and to learn how to ride better at the different paces. Essentially, I want to become a better trail rider. I'd like to get quotes on having lessons once or twice a week for about 3 months.
