Training and lessons
Sandy has competed on the AQHA and Heritage Circuits and has coached riders to National and World Show AQHA competitions. Previously, she instructed 4-H and Pony Club, and ran a therapeutic coach training center.
Sandy offers SHF Western and English riding lessons and rider level classes at flexible times. You can receive one-on-one instruction or be part of a group lesson in a friendly, encouraging environment. Sandy strongly believes that being involved with horses keeps the spirit in the human body alive and active. Watching riders...seeing the elasticity and freedom in their bodies, and their minds working to the fullest, is one of a coach's greatest fulfillments. Her training methods are gentle but effective and her national experience in judging competitions give her students that definite "edge".
