"Ethical ConsciousnessFor All Equestrians"


Teaching Subjects

Enlightened Dressage describes the philosophy that is the cornerstone of my teaching. I take care to ensure my students come away with a deeper understanding of the practical "HOW" and "WHY" of each lesson. Without clarity, there is no learning. This is why I have chosen to follow the path of Philippe Karl. His is a simple, progressive and logical system of training a horse that doesn't include any form of force, restraint or disrespect, and always has the well being of the horse at its center.
