Specializing in Hunter/Jumpers and Western Pleasure

(805) 501-2394

    I have devoted my life to riding and training horses.  My passion began at the tender age of 5, and I have been riding for over 38 years.  My professional career started at California Lutheran Equestrian Center where I trained horses and riders.  I rode with  Rusty Stewart, and won many Championships in Equitation, Hunter and Jumpers and Medal Classes.  I was the Professor of the Equestrian classes for Cal Lutheran.

    My focus for my students is to teach them how to connect and communicate with their horses in a quiet relaxed atmosphere. My students range from beginners to advanced riders of all ages who want to improve their riding, or who want to get back into riding.

    I offer private or semi-private lessons in Hunter/ Jumpers, Western Pleasure, Trail Riding and Horsemanship from beginner to advanced for people of all ages who want to experience the love of riding at your own pace in a non-competitive relaxed location here at Castlerock Farms.
