Genevieve offers a unique approach to lessons and training, working primarily with amateur adult and young riders who own their own horses and want a hand in the progression of their goals. She works only with a few students at a time to create an optimal and tailored program for both horse and rider. Lessons are interactive with a strong focus on balanced seat, basic dressage concepts and practical skills over fences.
Riders will have the opportunity to sharpen their skills in low level dressage, eventing and show jumping with the option to compete locally. Genevieve believes in developing confident and effective riders and balanced, happy horses through individualized programs.
Limited school horse types may be available for lessons on site.
Genevieve a offers training, preferably in conjunction with a regular lesson program to help coach riders through the struggles they are experiencing with their horses. Her goal is to help riders develop skills in managing their horse's behavioral problems, fitness and focus in addition to teaching general horsemanship concepts from the ground up.
Her experience training the young, inexperienced or behaviorally challenged horse is diverse and spans over many years. She loves a challenge while always respecting her limits. With concepts of natural horsemanship in mind, she strives for a kind and realistic approach, inviting each horse to make the right choices and work through the problems they are facing. Her background in veterinary medicine comes in handy when approaching training issues. She is able to systematically investigate the possible source of the problem in order to build an effective program to correct it.
Genevieve utilizes an open minded, compassionate and ethical approach. Always making trust a top priority. This translates into the relationship she forms with each horse and each client. It comes naturally to her to serve as an advocate not only for the horse but for the rider as well. She strongly believes in solid horsemanship, consistency and hard work - there are no easy fixes!
