“Kristin has a gift of bringing out the best in both her horses and her students. She single-handedly got me and my energetic thoroughbred Oliver to (and through) our first international 1* event. We successfully completed the event, finishing happily on our dressage score. We simply couldn’t have done it without her!” – Ashley Donayre

Training with Kristin is available to riders and horses of all ages and abilities. Whether she is coaching a competitive rider up through the international levels of eventing or starting a child on his or her first pony—she is committed to bringing out the best in her students. She is also well known for helping clients either purchase or lease a perfect equine partner—both for their riding ability and their riding goals. She will also give lessons on her own horses. To learn more about available training opportunities, contact Kristin directly.

“Every horse and rider has different needs. Kristin has a gift that allows her to understand those needs and, with patience, she provides the consistent and positive training that give both horse and rider the confidence needed to be the best they can be.” -Carrie Callahan
