Hello- I might be taking a lesson with Cherie next weekend I heard that she's great but wanted to know if any COTHers have ridden with her. Let me know!

Thanks!

I.love.Cherie.

Just had to get that off my chest. She bought her eventer Katchi from me years ago and I've followed them since, taken a few lessons from her, referred fellow boarders to her. She's a super fun and upbeat person and a very thorough, insightful trainer. She always had excellent observations about my position and how it affected my horse and a plethora of exercises to help correct issues.

You can see in her blog (golightlysporthorses.blogspot.com (http://golightlysporthorses.blogspot.com)) that she works very hard on her riding with Jimmy, Boyd and Silva and she's terrific at taking lessons learned there and translating them into ways to help her own students. She's had some good success getting her students to move up between levels in a really prepared way. Would probably be a pretty enjoyable lesson.

Addicted, I already responded to your PM, but I'll just reiterate that Cherie is great :) I agree with everything that Larissa said. Cherie coached me through my move from Novice to Training this year, always maintaining a positive attitude and a sense of humor. She even came and coached me at a hunter/jumper show (I begged). I think you'll enjoy your lesson!
