Professional horse training and riding lessons

I offer my clients the benefit of over 50 years of professional experience in the horse industry, encompassing dressage, eventing, hunter/jumper and foxhunting. My students are my daily inspiration. I strive to produce confident, relaxed horse and rider combinations based upon a training system that utilizes the classical fundamental principles of lightness, harmony and balance.

At Full Cry Farm, we are dedicated to assisting and guiding riders in the fulfillment of their dreams regardless of the level. All training programs are individually tailored to specific rider and horse goals whether for the dressage competition arena, an improved event dressage test or simply the further development of a riding partnership with a beloved mount. Current students range from Training Level - FEI as well as Beginner Novice - Preliminary Eventing.


Private and semi-private lessons are available at Full Cry Farm to fit your busy schedule. Trailer-in lessons are always welcome. Off-site lessons or clinics may be scheduled at your farm for a minimum of 4 students.
