Devin's teaching philosophy is simple. "I help riders achieve their goals, whether they want to complete or just improve position and clarify aids. I enjoy teaching a horse through their rider, keeping instrution simple and clear, yet effective. When riders know what aids to use to produce the best ride and correct any problems that arise, it builds both the horse and rider's confidence and skill. I really enjoy teaching, and often take the time during my own riding to examine what I am doing so that I may better communicate it to my students. My goal is to help riders learn the right way the first time.
Blue Rider Farm offers lessons in Eventing, Dressage, and jumping. Haul-in lessons are welcome. Our facilities include an indoor with large mirrors, all weather outdoor, a grass competition dressage arena, and a small cross country course to school through Novice. Devin regularly teaches at several cross country facilities in the area, and is available for coaching at recognized events and schooling shows. If you are interested in putting on a clinic at your facility, please contact her for pricing and availability.
Devin has a simple philosophy. "Horses respond best to praise, so as I train, I am always looking for for ways to reward them. I keep aids clear, requests simple and direct, and above all, consistent. I build them from the basics up, always keeping in mind their intended use and the strenghts of their rider." Contact Devin if you are interested in putting your horse in training, listing it for sale, or want an evaluation of it's suitablility for your purpose.
