Over the years I have enjoyed sharing your equestrian journey with you, celebrating the triumphs, and learning from the challenges. Some of these may have been competitive, pleasure, trail riding, or even the daily magic you experience with your horse!

Because I value your varied experience in the horse world I am reaching out to you for some suggestions and direction for an exciting new program I am launching this fall. The essentials are in place for this new program, and I’m fortunate to have my exceptional hhb team in place, doing behind the scene preparations. As they say, “Many hands make light the work.”  So, now I’m eager to share my ideas with successful equestrian riders like yourself and gather feedback to help me shape final details.

The positive response to my recent “Master Horsemanship Series Cavalletti Workshops” inspired me to rethink how I could provide a horsemanship curriculum to more riders, more often, and more affordably. It became clear to me that it was time to design a new coaching paradigm in order to be able to work with riders at their skill and experience levels.

Out of this process I crafted a coaching program that creates new possibilities in horsemanship achievement. The program is called Equestrian Coaching Edge™. This innovative program offers similarly-skilled riders unique cooperative learning opportunities. Each session delivers specific curriculum, and features personalized coaching and peer-to-peer activities. Research has shown that students in cooperative learning settings, compared to those in individual or competitive learning settings achieve more, reason better, and gain higher self-esteem,

So how can you make a difference? Please visit my website [this will link to a page on her website], review the program details, and fill out a short  online survey to share your candid perspective and suggestions, about the following:

Ride safe and enjoy, your friend and equestrian neighbor
