Testimonials

Kathy has an uncanny ability to relate to any rider, no matter what skill level they may be at. She has the experience and knowledge to teach riders from age 5 to 85 with patience and ease. My daughter began riding with Kathy at the age of 6. She was a shy, timid little girl who is now emerging as a confident and successful rider. Kathy has taught her the basics of horsemanship while instilling the responsibilities of being a horse owner over the years. Emily has excelled as a barrel racer and team penner/sorter under the guidance of Kathy, her trusted trainer and mentor.

I used to think that all it took to be a good rider was to stay on top of the horse. It wasn’t until I started riding with Kathy that I understood the importance of good horsemanship and the time, technique, patience, and persistence that it takes to achieve it. In the five years that I have been riding with Kathy, she has transformed me into a skilled and confident rider with soft hands, strong legs, a firm seat, and a real connection with my horse. Kathy introduced me to the sports of team penning and ranch sorting, and graciously rode with me in competition, even though I was far below her level, to give me a learning experience. Each day I learn a little more from Kathy, but it will take a lifetime to learn everything that she has to teach.
