I have been riding and teaching in eventing, jumpers and dressage for nearly 40 years, competing through Open Intermediate in Eventing and earning my United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Bronze and Silver medals.
I am based in the East Bay of the San Francisco area at Double G Ranch in Briones. Double G features a covered arena with excellent, new footing centrally located between Martinez, Pinole, and Lafayette, and only 30 minutes from Oakland and Berkeley. In addition to my regular students and their horses, I also give frequent clinics in other areas. Please contact me to arrange a clinic at your barn or cross-country venue.
My clients are "regular people" who bring an array of strengths and areas needing improvement to the barn with them, from beginners to FEI. I pride myself on using each student's strengths to help them meet their goals, whatever their limitations of time, finances or current physical fitness may be; disabilities can also be accommodated in many circumstances.
I would love to speak with you about what you are looking for in a trainer. You are welcome to come to the barn and watch some lessons of riders with your level of experience or with needs similar to yours, but to watch some clips on YouTube and get a feel for my style, please click here.
