Welcome to my website.
My job takes me way beyond "riding instructor". Over the years, teaching horsemanship has opened up the opportunity to coach people to become better at many aspects of life. Working with horses brings out the best in all of us. It encourages growth in our character and relationships. I love my job. It is my passion.
I have been handling horses extensively for over 19 years and teaching horsemanship for well over 14 years. It has been my privilege to learn from some of the best horse professionals in the world. I have studied Pat Parelli's Natural Horsemanship program through several certified Parelli instructors including Christi Rains, David Ellis, Mark Berry, Nita Jo Rush Dr. Grady Carter, Jerilyn Caldwell and Linda Parelli. I have attended countless clinics all over the country including both Parelli Ranches. My program references many publications during my teaching such as "Natural Horsemanship" by Pat Parelli. It has been a wonderful journey with these fine instructors as well as home study material and tour stops provided by the Parelli Program.
I have managed equine breeding programs, kids riding camps, boarding facilities in addition to helping hundreds of students improve their riding and horsemanship. I have owned as many as 14 horses at a time. Prior to my immerson in the world of horses, I raised 5 kids with my husband, Robert, whom I met while working as a computer programmer at EDS. My equine partners are Udacio (an Andalusion gelding) and Bravado (a Mustang gelding).
I am so grateful for the wisdom that has been shared with me and for my beautiful equine partners who continue to stretch me and make me better. I would love to help you to have the same amazing experiences that I have had with my horses!
In addition to Horsemanship, I have a passion for wellness and helping others achieve optimun health. I proudly represent Zeal for Life. .
