“Ever since I was a young girl I have been interested in the minds of horses and the way horses moved and why. It has kept me developing new methods to work with them and not against them. I focus on helping them balance themselves and teaching riders to be balanced as well; to become a working team.
I began working, showing and training Arabians as an assistant with a very good Trainer, Eric Brand. Through the years I have ridden hunters, cow horses, reiners, trail horses, western riding, driving horses, side saddle, saddle seat , racing horses, “western dressage” and I have done some rodeoing. So, you see, my experience has been very diverse
I have learned from the best and am always striving to be the best I can be. I never stop learning from trainers and clinicians. Travelling to major shows has been paramount to keeping current with evolving styles.
For the past several years I have focused on the Quarter Horse show circuit. I have taken horses to many National Championships and Futurity Championships and several horses to top 10 at the Quarter Horse World Show. I have also been top 10 in the Hunter Under Saddle at the biggest horse show in World, the All American Quarter Horse Congress. I have helped numerous youth and amateurs to top 10 at these events. One student became reserve hunter Under Saddle at the Quarter House Youth show
I have a level 3 CERTIFIED HORSEMANSHP ASSOCIATION Coach accreditation which I accomplished amongst US professional Trainers and Judges in Tennessee.
I help the Midnight Express 4h club on Sundays and I do many Clinics and judging and teach wherever asked.
My goal is to teach riders to excel so in turn their horses can excel and the horse is happy doing its job. I like to teach people why their horses are doing what they are doing.”
