About Nancy

My experience training and showing horses has helped me hone effective strategies for goal setting and success in competition and in life.

I am passionate about helping young athletes find the tools they need to stay confident and productive while still having the fun that being a young person should bring.

“I first met Nancy Lavoie when I was sixteen through her junior dressage camp at Ashby Stock Farm in Ashby Massachusetts. From this time, I have continued to train with Nancy at least every other month. Through this time with Nancy, I have not only developed my riding, but I have also developed my mental awareness. She has influenced my mental state to a more positive and relaxed place. Through different exercises, she has taught me how to slow my mind and control my anxieties. She has created ways to tangibly find a path to achieving my goals.  I have found that she brings out the best in all her students and clients. Each person has something to take away from working with her.”
