Hey, I'm Lindsay!

My husband Jess and I breed, raise, train, show and sell Western performance horses.

I love to help reiners and reiner wannabes understand and apply riding concepts that will make them the rider I know they can be. 

My goal in coaching and teaching is to empower you with knowledge of your own body parts as they relate to communicating with your horse.

When you understand these things and are able to apply them to your riding, then you’ll be ready for the show ring in no time. 

Are you ready to take your first step?

I’ll see you inside the video series!
