For over 18 years Kathleen has been a professional trainer and certified in ARIA Riding Instructor Program. The certification program proves that the instructor has the highest standards of knowledge, skills, safety that ARIA sets forth for the benefit of the horse and rider.
Kathleen’s main goal for students is helping them create a successful partnership with their horse. Teaching student’s patience and helping them view the horse, through the horse's eye, makes for an accomplished and happy horse and rider.
Beginners need a riding instructor to help them lay the foundation basics and intermediate and above riders can always use an expert eye. For beginners, it is not just the riding. Proper instruction on handling, putting the correct tack on the horse, grooming and care are emphasized. Showing in-hand is a great step as beginners advance. Although many of her students do not have their own horse, a gifted talented and extremely kind of lesson horse is a must. Kathleen has taken the time to find just such horses. Beginners can feel confident and safe that the horse they are riding on will give and be forgiving and kind with safety always the priority. Many students advance quite quickly because these horses. As the saying goes. "They are worth their weight in gold!" Of course I do have advanced horses for these who already have the basic skills.
Although going to shows is done on a regular basis with several students (including beginners to advance on our lesson horses or their own), this is not a requirement showing is not for everyone but we do always give the option.
