Equestrian Resume

A life long equestrian, my strengths lie in clear communication and instilling confidence in both horse and rider. Student’s praise my ability to teach a skill that fits their method of understanding, as well as patience and drive to help accomplish their goals. I believe there is always something new and exciting to learn with horses. Teaching and training is my way to pass on and share what I’ve learned. I teach Pony Club, youth programs, and travel to clients location for lessons.
We are lucky to call Castle Rock, Colorado home!
I travel to teach lessons and clinics in Western Dressage, Dressage and Eventing. Ground work/manners and conditioning rides for the trail, too! If you are interested in having a clinic at your barn, please contact me.
