About MeFor many years, I was a trainer in Northern IL, but I've transitioned to Amateur in Austin, TX! I believe dressage should be for any horse and any rider, so I want to inspire you to train your horse to levels you never thought possible, and I want to share with you the secrets of biomechanics and classical dressage to make it happen.

As an amateur again, I've gained an appreciation for the challenges that come with juggling a non-horse job with the rest of life, and still trying to keep a horse going as well!
