About Angie

TRAINING THE HORSE 

During her career as a Dressage Trainer, Angie has made it a priority to develop a bond with each and every horse she trains. Through patience and kindness Angie will EDUCATE your horse to the true meaning of the aids. 

Angie has set herself apart by taking a studied approach to riding both on and off the horse.  Her in-depth understanding of the bio-mechanics of Dressage and the impact on both horse and rider is demonstrated by immediate and positive changes she affects in the horses she trains as well as her students.  

 

INSTRUCTING THE RIDER

Angie is unique in her ability to effectively articulate the bio-mechanics of riding in a way that is easily understood and meaningful to her students.  She is able to quickly pinpoint issues, explain why and how they block the aids, and then show her students exactly how to make corrections.  All her students demonstrate immediate new found awareness and understanding of how to use their body and the aids to be effective in a subtle and harmonious way.

EDUCATING THE STUDENT

As a faculty member at Horse Courses Online, Angie is able to develop the horse trainers of tomorrow.  From Dressage basics to equine symposiums to international competition, Angie has instructed the more than 4,000 students that are earning their BAs, AAs, and Certificates of Achievement in equine studies online.
