USDF Bronze and Silver Medalist - Triple Certified Equestrian at the highest levels - B.A. in Equine Studies - M.S. in Coaching Education
Samantha is an advocate for all horses,
not just the big fancy warmbloods.
She seeks to bring out the beauty and elegance in any breed by using a systematic training approach with classical Dressage.
Her students develop these skills by focusing on an independent
seat, leg, and hand.
What people are saying...
"Sam is a wonderful riding instructor and trainer. I came back to riding after a long hiatus and Sam made me fall in love with dressage all over again. Her ability to tune into each student and personalize every lesson is a testament to her amazing eye and caring approach."
