Bridging the Art & Science of Equine Bodywork
There is power in understanding the structure of the equine body. Once we have a decent understanding of the inside of the horse, we can allow that to be our guide as we journey deeper to embody the intelligence of intuition, feel, intention and connection.

This program will deliver a brief overview of the skeletal structure of the horse and the ‘6-junctions’ that are often involved when physical body issues arise. From there, we will delve into energetic connection and how we can access an invisible world where matters such as joy, trauma, and identity live within every living being.

    I have been riding with instruction since age 8 and showing in AQHA, Appaloosa, AHSA/Open, Eventing, Hunter/Jumpers and Dressage. I have had the opportunity to ride with several well-known Clinicians and Trainers over the past 45 years. My passion is dressage now and I have spent the last 35 years concentrating on improving my knowledge and riding skills.

    I have had the privilege to train some talented horses and each one has given me the chance to become a better rider. In 2012 my goal to train and compete a horse to Grand Prix was achieved. With that goal accomplished I am now working on upgrading my judging credentials.

    As a Trainer and Instructor I strive to help both the horse and rider to enjoy the journey of dressage through positive reinforcement and clear achievable goals. I get excited every time a student/client finds the harmony in riding and especially when they achieve an award.

    Students have earned their Bronze and Silver medals as well as Rocky Mountain Dressage and USDF Year End Awards. Students include Junior/Young Riders in both Dressage and Eventing. Several have qualified and attended the Junior/Young Rider Championships. Adult Amateur Riders compete in both Dressage, Eventing and Western Dressage.
    As a judge I enjoy watching horses and the training needed to perform a quality test. When a horse and rider demonstrate harmony and skill I am thrilled to give that high score. It is a pleasure and privilege to judge horses and riders
