Joanne is available to teach private or group lessons at barns across the Portland area. She offers everything from beginner basics for those just starting their riding journey to advanced lessons for those looking improve their skills in dressage and jumping.
Her lessons are customized based on the skills, goals, and needs of each horse and rider. She is a certified riding instructor, up-to-date on all necessary insurance, and SafeSport certified.
Showing can be an exciting but sometimes stressful time for even the most seasoned horse and rider, but Joanne is committed to making sure her clients feel confident and capable of achieving their competition goals.
She offers daily or weekend competition coaching at many local schooling and regional recognized shows throughout the year. This service include pre-ride review of each phase, warm-up ring coaching and post-competition debrief, as well as transportation for horses, when needed.
WHAT IS THREE DAY EVENTING?
Joanne works with horses at every level to be the best partner for their riders. Whether a young, off-the-track thoroughbred or a been-there-done-that pony, she believes every horse can benefit from professional training to develop skills and improve performance.
Her training programs are customized depending on the unique needs of each individual horse and owner - this could be an intensive commitment with multiple rides per week to build key skills or a few sessions each month to help horses better understand what's being asked of them by their owners.
