NOTE: Website being updated Feb/March 2022!
After building, running & managing Crescendo Farms for 30 years, we sold our property in August 2021.
I am beyond blessed at the clients I have had over the years, and those I continue to teach/train. In February 2022, I am relocating my lesson/training program just 5 minutes down the road near Scholls where boarding, lessons & lease opportunities are available.
Teaching is my passion, I love working with students of all ages and abilities. I feel strongly about giving students a well rounded education with a focus on the basics. The concepts of Centered Riding®, Contemporary Alexander Technique & Natural Horsemanship apply to whatever discipline you ride- English, Western, competitive or for your own enjoyment. Those fundamentals permeate my teaching the traditional disciplines of Dressage, Hunters & Equitation.
Working Equitation is a relatively new discipline in the US is something that brings together all the above disciplines and details in one (very fun) discipline.
To summarize, I teach from a classical perspective, in a friendly atmosphere that promotes communication between horse and rider, as well as coach and rider. I believe that students should learn the "why" behind what they are asked to do. I hope to develop my students to have more of a trainer's mentality - to analyze, feel, ask, assess and make decisions or changes as often as necessary during their ride.
If you would like to schedule a time to watch a lesson or training ride, please contact me. I would love to meet you!
