Coming to horse riding later in life, and to the daunting sport of dressage was challenging. Karen understood of my passion for a partnership with my horse, had an appreciation for my aging joints and guided me through lessons and competitions. Few coaches have such a combination of competency in the foundation basics of horse and rider, supportive and motivating teaching techniques, and a genuine love and compassion for horses.
