“… always supportive, flexible and willing to help …”
“Katie’s ability to ‘figure out’ a horse almost instantly is uncanny. She has a natural talent for helping horses and their riders meet their full potential. I’ve ridden with Katie for more than two years and she has always been supportive, flexible and willing to help me out whenever I need it.”
~ Suzannah E.
“She has an amazing eye for detail …”
“Katie has taken me from an ignorant, scared-to-death-of-XC-and-dressage amateur to a confident, capable rider. She has an amazing eye for detail and can pinpoint the slightest thing I am doing wrong and help me correct it to improve both myself and my horse’s way of going. Both of my horses were scoring in the high 40s/50s when I bought them; now, they are winning at Novice and Connor is placing well at Training, thanks in large part to Katie’s guidance.”
