Every horse has a unique personality and Alison has spent a lifetime learning the "language" of horses. She approaches each horse's training based on the needs of that particular horse; not what the book says!! Like people, every horse has it's own brand...no two are alike. Rather than focusing on a particular discipline in the beginning Alison focuses on the mental and emotional needs of the horse. Often times issues exist solely because of miscommunication between a horse and it's rider. Once the barriers of miscommunication have been dismantled she then focuses on the chosen discipline. Alison has over 30 years of experience in the show ring and has competed in a variety of disciplines. Her true passion is in the Jumper ring but she has a wealth of knowledge and experience in Hunters, Jumpers, Dressage, Western Pleasure and even Barrel Racing.
