Whether your goal is competition, trail riding or simply being a more relaxed and effective horseperson, I am available to help riders and horses understand each other better. I enjoy working with all horses and my special interest is off track horses.
I am a USEA ICP-certified riding instructor and teach primarily at my private facility in Cambridge, Iowa. Many riders trailer in to the facility for lessons.
We have an indoor riding arena and a schooling cross country course on site, and another two available to us nearby. We have hundreds of acres of land to ride and live adjacent to the Heart of Iowa Trail, a miles-long, shared-use grassy trail. I take special interest in training horses. I take one external horse in training at a time and keep training blogs for each ride.
I have a regular group riding lesson on Thursday nights at 6:00 at Field Day where we enjoy or time working on dressage, showjumping or cross country skills, depending on the season and the needs of the group. I travel to teach at Irish Run Farms in Des Moines on most Friday mornings and to Hickory Grove in Madrid on Monday evenings. I also teach clinics throughout the Midwest. You can contact me to schedule lessons, training or clinics. Email or by cell 515-231-9875.
If you are looking to buy a horse and would like a professional opinion or some help along the way, I am available for consulting. If you are looking to sell a horse, I occasionally have people looking. Both services are available for a reasonable fee.
I foxhunt with the North Hills Hunt in the autumn and winter months. If you are interested in foxhunting I can help you learn the skills you need to be successful and relaxed in the hunt field, and even ride with you in the hunt field.
