“I have been helping people reach their goals for the past 12 years. I started teaching at Oakridge Stables, in 2006, for the European Pony School (What is now, Santa Rosa Equestrian Center), and continued there for several years teaching private and group lessons to children of all ages. We attended schooling shows, and ran full service horse camps. I moved to Sacramento in 2009 and continued my passion for teaching by opening my own riding school. Throughout the past years I have helped numerous students achieve success and fulfill their dreams in and out of the show ring. From ages 5 to 65 , no one is too young or old to join our show team! We have an amazing group of supportive riders and friends that encourage each other on and have a lot of fun in the process! In addition we actively attend clinics by top professionals in the sport such as; Geroge Morris, Phillip Dutton and Hawley Bennet. We are committed to progression for all levels, and go cross country schooling regularly. You and your horse will get experience and preparation for upcoming shows!”
