I am a certified and licensed horse back riding instructor offering lessons to students west of Boston, MA. Though my base is in Harvard, MA, I often go to other towns surrounding that area, and as well as towns in Martha's Vineyard and southern New Hampshire.
My passion is teaching and training. For over 40 years, I have been working with riders and horses to develop their athletic abilities and improve their partnerships in dressage, jumping and basic training. I have been an ARIA Level III Dressage Instructor for about 30 years, and am a USDF Bronze medalist. My experience includes having been the director and head instructor of an Equine Management Studies Program at a local college. Though I specialize in dressage, I have also had experience in eventing and huntseat equitation, so I am comfortable teaching jumping as well.
I enjoy working with riders of all experience levels and learning styles, and horses of all breeds and levels of training. If you just love to ride and want to learn to be more connected to your horse, or if you are a competitive rider who is actively participating in the show circuit, I am happy to work with you.
While most of my students have their own horses, some students lease horses on a regular basis at one of the stables where I teach. Whatever the circumstance, I seek to provide my students with the tools, and their horses with the training, that help them become a flexible, confident and harmonious team.
