Kristen’s Training Philosophy

IMG_3415“I believe that my job as a trainer is to help create a successful partnership between horse and rider. It is important to base a training program on the rider’s ambition combined with the capabilities of the horse. Establishing a goal-oriented training program enables the rider to achieve his or her objectives in a sound, positive environment.”

I feel that for training to progress it is essential that the rider’s aids are not only correct, but also effective. Using a consistent method helps to create the best relationship and accord between horse and rider.”
