I was the little girl who worked for free at the barns just so I could be around and ride the horses.
Fast forward many years later...
After years of studying and experimenting with horse training methods, I chose to follow the Parelli Natural Horsemanship program. Through hard work, study, and lots of horse time, I completed my 2-Star Parelli Instructor rating. As a licensed Parelli Instructor, I founded Sand 2 Saddle Horsemanship - training you and your horse from the Ground Up.
Along with instructing, I also enjoy competitive trail and endurance rides and hold memberships with SEDRA, AERC, and ACTHA. I believe a good foundation is critical to a horse's mental and physical well-being before moving forward with specialization and competition. This makes it fun for both the horse and human! I can help you build your horse's foundation to become competitive in these sports!
I am also a distributor for Photonic Health's Red Light Therapy. Photonic Health has put together the Photonic Red Light Therapy system - a complete system that provides you all the tools you need to help your pets get better fast. It works on all soft-tissue injuries, which is over 90% of all sicknesses out there.
The Parelli Professional Promise
I promise to help you become well-rounded in your savvy
both on the ground and riding;
to prepare you for success at every level -
to read your horse, understand his Horsenality and
develop your savvy skills OnLine, at Liberty, in FreeStyle and Finesse.
I promise to inspire and support your quest for never ending self-improvement.
The Parelli Pathway and Savvy Club will guide you to success and
help you measure your progress every step of the way.
I promise to put my relationship with you, my student, first.
And I promise to help you put the relationship with your horse first.
Rather than perfecting the task we will care more about
confidence, trust, motivation and willingness …as true horsemen do.
