I grew up in Portland Oregon and was very fortunate to have extremely supportive parents who fueled my horse passion with 4-H and lessons three days a week. I began showing when I was nine and 50 years later I’m still at it. I’ve made my living training horses since I finished college at Oregon State. Over the years I’ve always combined my dressage and western training so when Cowboy Dressage came along it was the perfect venue for me. I’m now the head trainer for Whispering Winds Farm in Mulino Oregon and have the opportunity to work with a variety of different breeds using the tenets of Cowboy Dressage. What a great life!
