The Colt Starter
The Colt Starter natural horse training method comes from equine psychology with common sense communication techniques. Our goal is to create a sound foundation for every young horse  whether destined to be a Grand Prix jumper or trail mount. Better communication between horse and rider through basic exercises is a key to help the horse be a more enjoyable, respectful mount. We want all horse owners at all experience levels, and other specialized trainers that may later work with the horse, to have successful harmonious partnerships without force. Our goal is to help horses and owners enjoy their time together, and achieve the owners objectives. One of the results from The Colt Starter training method, is that your horse learns confidence and respect by learning to work with humans and to do what you ask  when you ask. Your horse will be quieter, more obedient, and confident in him/herself and you, as the rider/handler.

Private lesson  45 minutes - $45 Semi-private lesson  60 minutes - $35 Training/schooling - $45 Horse Show Coaching  Available to established students A little about meI currently work for a private sales barn providing full care and training for five horses. My riding career, spanning over 40 years, began at age seven in Europe where I trained with academy instructors for over seven years honing dressage and jumping skills. In college I rode hunter and equitation for Fresno State Universitys IHSA/NCAA team from 1998-2000 under coaches Megan McGee and LeeAnn Nounan. As a USPC club-level officer for four years here in North Carolina I enjoyed working closely with my colleagues and parents mentoring riders, organizing lessons, teaching, and preparing the teams for shows. My competition experience includes both dressage and eventing, and my absolute passion is OTTBs. Additionally, I have been fortunate enough to train with and work for several top professionals including, Melissa Creswick, Caroline Atherholt-McClung, Amanda Miller-Atkins and Holly Hudspeth.
