Laura's philosophy of dressage training is built around five core principles:
consistency, communication, thinking about the release, developing a secure seat, and experimentation.

My mare and I am so grateful that we found Laura for our dressage trainer.


Laura is an extraordinarily gifted rider and trainer.  She  understands horses, and puts their wellbeing above all else. Laura coaches with her whole heart.  She rides every stride with me and coaches me to improve every moment.  Her style of coaching is just what I need to make corrections right then and there. Laura is quick to praise and encourage during every lesson. 


Laura's talent with her horses and students is incredible.  I feel so blessed to have her as my trainer.  My horse and I are truly communicating better and the trust between us is stronger than ever.


I know that with Laura’s continued involvement in our journey the bond between my horse and I will continue to strengthen.
