Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship (PATH) certified registered instructor
horse care, grooming, maintenance, exercising horses, training horses, teaching riding lessons for riders of various ability levels including riders with disabilities and able-bodied riders.
I've been riding and working with horses for 15 years. I've been a trail guide and taught lessons to able-bodied riders along with riders with disabilities. I have experience in basic equine care and maintenance along with handling difficult horses. I have been taking lessons for 15 years towards a goal of showjumping and extensive flatwork. I have done some very basic dressage work. I have been teaching lessons for 3 years. I've been asked to ride many difficult horses, especially ones who buck, in an effort to remove the bad habits. I have been studying natural horsemanship for several years and will often work with horses with natural horsemanship before beginning any kind of other labors with the horse.
I've developed an affinity for teaching riders to develop good basics before moving up to higher levels of riding including good seat and steady leg. I also work with horses to break bad habits by way of extensive ground work, lunging, and riding.
I work with different horses to teach them to round out and utilize the muscles along their back. I primarily ride hunter/jumper but often school greener horses through ground work and riding. I do a lot of lunging with horses also to encourage natural and unrestricted movement.
