My Story

I'm a USDF Bronze medalist, coach, competitor, and dressage trainer

I'm a dressage rider and personal trainer, and my focus is always on improving the performance of the horse and rider. With the unique combination of the above, I look to see how imbalances in the horse/rider combination affect their potential growth as a pair. I also studied horse and rider biomechancis, among other topics, in university, so that is always at the forefront of my analysis of a partnership. Influences include Mary Wanless, Kim Kulesa, Stephen Peters, and Amy Miller.
