    Yes we are :). I lesson with her and can honestly say she is not only a gifted trainer but instructor. I think her "intensity" with regards to coaching has softened to a degree especially since...

    Thank you!:) I can put my horse together better if I sit, so I stay sitting. However I see lots of people posting so I think people just do what's best for their horse and themselves.
