I was put on my first horse when I was two years old, I started taking riding lessons and showing Dressage as well as 4-H when I was eight years old. When I was 12 years old I started training my mother's horses and my own. At the age of 17 I started my training business.
I have had great success with the methods I use when training horses, I practice Natural Horsemanship, along with some Classical Dressage techniques, as well as some of my own techniques. I feel it is better for the horse's mental as well as their physical status to use the Natural Horsemanship methods in their training.
I specialize in forming a good foundation on young horses as well as horses that have missed essential elements in their training.
I went to MN School of Horseshoeing to further my knowledge in the horse industry and graduated in the spring of 2006.
I currently own a small Horse Training Facility in Makinen, MN. Equipped with a 65' x 120' outdoor arena, 50' round pen, 3 large pastures with run in shelter, and 3 smaller pastures with run in shelter.
