Leslie has been coaching adults and children at horse shows for 35 plus years, from young leadline children to much more advanced jumping.  Riding lessons are the first step to a rewarding lifelong passion that horses can become! Showing can be an important step in that development. Riders have options from schooling shows just starting out to rated shows and finals. Leslie strives for a "happy horse" that is willing to give the best performance and is very educated in achieving this goal. For an in depth look at her philosophy, read" Basic Horsemanship: nuts and bolts. Is my horse happy?" on her blog  Notes from a riding instructor
