THE PROGRAM

FOCUSED ON THE

"6 KEY PRINCIPLES"

HORSEMANSHIP, FUNCTIONAL POSITION, BALANCE,

 

CONDITIONING, RIDEABILITY & COMPETITIVE STRATEGY

 "We could not stop talking about the classroom environment of the barn and the aptitude of the “teacher”.  We all agreed that clear direction, explanation, and solutions, on a basic level, for complex riding was what we seemed to be missing, and Dana delivered all of that."

John M.

SEPTEMBER 18, 2018

THE TEACHER

RIDES AND COMPETES

APPROACH, ATTITUDE, & PATIENCE

 "Dana has a positive personality and encourages her students with pointers, gentle corrections and lots of praise for horse and rider as they master the different aspects in the ring! She is wonderful to watch while training, YOU NEED TO EXPERIENCE HER POSITIVE GUIDANCE IF YOU WANT TO IMPROVE!
