Educational Background

MS, Agriculture Extension and Education | Utah State University | 2022 BS, Equine Science & Management | Utah State University | 2020


I grew up in Las Vegas, Nevada and had the opportunity to not only ranch in Southern Idaho in the summers but show horses in ranch versatility and reined cowhorse. In college I had the opportunity to ride and train with an FEI dressage trainer in Park City, UT who expanded my understanding of rider biomechanics immensely. I love riding outside in the mountains just as much as I do training and showing in the arena. I'm passionate about combining connection and biomechanics with horses, and teaching people how to feel their equine, not just think about their equine. If you are curious about any of our programming, please call or email me - we'd love to have you.
