Teaching safe horsemanship at your barn or ours. Learn how to understand what your horse is telling you. Learn how to ride in a familiar environment on your horse (your place) or try something new on one of ours (Sunfire Ranch in Lehi). I have 22 years of riding experience and 12 years of teaching under my belt. I began riding as a member of the USPC and 4-H. I have worked internationally (Canada and Ireland) as a rider, stable hand, and groom. I have experience guiding trails, driving carriages and rehabilitating rescue horses. I am often asked if I teach western or english; my Response is that I teach horsemanship. At a fundamental level the basics of correct horsemanship are the same and riding can be done in any saddle you prefer, or none at all! (Although to jump you do have to be in an english saddle.) Here is what some of my students have to say:
"She was sought after as an instructor for her calm demeanor, encouraging and explicit style, and her consistently high standards." ~Amanda
"She was an excellent instructor and great with all of the clients. Her happy and animated personality brought out a smile in our toughest students..."
"While she is as hardy as any workhorse or mule, but she differs in her ability to befriend any animal and their owner; and amazingly, due to her life experience, she has the compassion to heal and enable them. Many horses and hearts have been touched by her..." ~Tamra W.
Let me help you take the fear and uncertainty out of riding and bring out the best in you and your horse.
I am available to travel to local barns and train clients horses during the week to keep them on a healthy conditioning schedule. I am experienced in starting horses in a resistance free method.
I am now accepting new students, both children and adults.
