Alex with Zelly

There is no better time than NOW to take your riding and your relationship to the next level.

Whether you are a beginner or experienced horse person we can work and play together starting from wherever you are on your journey.

You, your horse, and I are a team with common goals to relax, improve our skills and have fun.

All of my students learn and incorporate in-hand exercises on the ground in their lessons. As long as a good foundation is present then we can also focus on the riding.  I teach dressage, jumping, and recreational riding for pleasure.

  • Understanding and recognizing your horse’s body language
  • Using energy and human body language to influence your horse
  • Breathing and stretching while riding to relax and build strength, balance, and flexibility
  • Catching, grooming and tacking up your horse
  • Correct equitation
  • Riding in both a fenced ring and out of the ring on varied terrain
  • Mounted games for increasing your coordination
  • Training your horse on the ground and under saddle
  • Partnership building
  • Jumping and preparation for competition are optional


 Set yourself and your horse free! Be present, have fun and challenge convention around the horse/human bond.
