“As an event rider with mostly hot, fit Thoroughbreds, finding a dressage trainer who took their specific needs into consideration has been non-existent until I worked with Christa. Her patience, talent and horsemanship has given me hope with my difficult horses and improved my scores, even over a short period of time.
I have seen her work with amateurs and aspiring professionals alike and have never been more impressed with another dressage rider and trainer. I love that she can get on any of my horses and improve them immediately while also having a plan for their progression over a longer amount of time.
She has the ability to quickly get to the root of an issue between a horse and rider and communicate a practical, effective solution. As a coach, she is tirelessly on the riders side, and has a vested interest in the correct development of each individual.
