Training

Jodi works with both horse and rider to improve communication between the pair.  She uses lunging, cavaletti, hill work, jumping and galloping to improve the horses strength, flexibility and confidence.  She also incorporates Pilates, cardio and mounted exercises to accomplish the same thing for the rider.

 
Jodi believes that a horse who is patiently trained and conditioned properly will be happier in his work.  A horse trained in this manner will have a better chance of having a long, serviceable and sound career.  She never forces a horse to 'fit the expected mold.' Jodi lets the horse tell her through his work when he is ready to move up to a new challenge.  Her focus on 'the basics'  of the Dressage Training Pyramid Scale, no matter what level, keep her horses happily moving up to meet their full potential.
