Lessons and Training

 

Christine was born form German parents who put her into Dressage training at the early age of five. Starting at the age of eight she was put into training for 3 years with the world-renowned German trainer Max Von Bleucher. As her knowledge grew, she began jumpers and 3-day eventing. During high school, she spent summers showing the east coast hunter/ jumper A circuit and began training her own horses for competition. After high school, she obtained her Bachelor's degree at Texas A&M University. While in college she competed for 4 years on the equestrian team and attended 2 national intercollegiate finals. After graduation, she took time off to start a family.Now both children are school age and her career has continued, now showing and training locally.

 

“My focus has now progressed to training and lessons. I do my best to improve horse and rider together. Moving through issues, and encouraging self-confidence in both horse and rider so they may progress on their own timetable, in the method that works best for them. I use natural horsemanship communication, and help people understand, and respond to the natural behavior of their horses from the ground and in the saddle. Every horse and rider combination is unique, and each has their own challenges to overcome. With consistency and instruction, I do my best to help my students reach their goal and go beyond."
