What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?
Safety is the most important part of riding for both rider and horse. What priority does the trainer put on safety. Do they require safety helmets? How much experience in teaching and riding does the instructor have? How much continuing education have they participated in, clinics, symposiums, etc.
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
That I care for every horse on the property as though they were all mine. I evaluate their condition every time I am at the stall. In the evaluation I determine what changes need to happen to keep them happy, sound and in good physical condition. Nutrition adjustments for seasonal changes is extremely important. I want customers to know that like all professions there are experts and frauds with everything in between. Please pay careful attention to your horse's care-giver
