When I embarked on a career with horses many years ago, my goal was to be the best possible rider I could be, and to be able to help others achieve this goal. On a personal level this goal still exists for me and I am still striving to be a better rider everyday. Learning to be a better dressage rider is a fabulous journey that has taken me to super stables in the U.S. and in Europe, as well as introduced me to wonderful people with the same interests, goals and love of horses that I have.
The mission of Carousel Dressage Horses is to train horses through the USDF and FEI levels, to help them be the best they can be, both with us and with their owners. Our goal is to provide a relaxed environment for our mounts while still providing a positive training center for horses and their riders. We teach dressage enthusiasts how to communicate with their horses in a positive and confident way. We are here to help riders realize that in order to be successful in dressage one does not need to build tension and pressure in your horse. We strive to be competitive in the show arena with sound and happy horses, because good training is not an accident; it is created purposefully with a determined system.
In addition to dressage training services I also offer personal and performance coaching. I am a Certified RMT Life Coach and Mindfulness Coach, which adds to my years of experience studying and training the productive mindset for long term success and happiness. This is a natural way for me to offer more tools to my students - and as I have often struggled with the distance this sport puts between me and my wonderful students - this avenue allows me to help people no matter where we are. Carousel Coaching provides face-to-face or phone coaching, allowing me to help you define goals, create a sustainable path, (regardless of budget), negotiate interruptions, and manage a successful show mindset.
