Emily Jenkins believes in working with each horse in training, to create an individual, simple and tailored plan for success. She has worked with horses of all backgrounds, specializing in bringing peace to horses with rough backgrounds, frustrating behaviors, bending and softening issues and stress-related habits. Her methods of training are gentle and clear for the horse to understand, borrowing heavily from French dressage and natural horsemanship. She offers training in Dressage, Jumping, Huntseat, Western Dressage, Western Pleasure and Gymkhana, and she has extensive experience rehabilitating rescued horses with neglect/abuse histories, as well as lameness cases.

Kay Schlemmer trains horses as well as riders. Horseback riding is a team sport, and the horse is an equal partner in the team. In training Kay likes to emphasize and elaborate on each horse’s individual strengths. She has experience starting and training young and green horses, restarting older or opinionated mounts, as well as adding a few finishing touches to your dressage or trail horse. No matter what discipline a horse is suited for Kay trains horses to be respectful, safe, confident, and happy.
