Danielle's Horse Philosophy-
I have a belief that there are many great athletic horses that simply need the tools to unlock their true potential. All of the difficult horses that I have ever worked with have in one way or another not lived up to their potential with the previous owners/riders.In working with any horse, I allow them to tell me what their limitations are and I believe in their abilities reasonably, realistically, and sensibly.... (read more) I have a optimistic, creative mind and truly enjoy finding the solutions to physical and mental puzzles for each individual horse I work with. I like to find and use creative ways in my jumping and dressage exercises along with classic riding/training principles to help the horse. I like to teach horses how to appropriately act in different situations, and I make it their responsibility to think for themselves. I believe that in order to have a successful partnership, you must be able to have patience and understanding, along with consistency and clarity.
