I specialize in classical/alt-classical dressage, with a focus on biomechanics and the inner drive of the horse. As a LIMA (Least Intrusive, Minimally Aversive) trainer, my teachings are based heavily in Positive Reinforcement. I offer training in a variety of focus’ including Liberty, Trick Training, and Working Equitation. All of my lessons and training are closely tied with the emotional state and interpersonal skills of the human.

Long Distance Lessons/Consulting:
I offer lessons and consulting via video call for students outside of my travel area. Looking to learn more about positive reinforcement, liberty, or the Unbridled Way? Get one on one education as you explore an alternative way of working with horses. Seeking assistance on behavioral issues from food aggression to trailer loading, or anything in between? I can create a comprehensive behavior modification plan tailored to you and your horse and offer support and guidance as you implement it. Could you use insight on your training sessions? I offer video analysis and in depth discussion to help you unlock the next level.
All Long Distance Lessons and Consultations are $40 for an hour long session. The Behavior Modification program has a free 30 minute initial consultation to go over your horses history and examine the issues you would like to resolve included in the first session.
