About Nancy

I am grateful to have been able to build a life around training horses.

This has not been without some struggles, and it is through these struggles that I have been asked to learn hard lessons and grow aspects of myself that I had no idea were necessary as a young trainer.

In addition to being an accomplished competitor at the Grand Prix level, a Five Star Rider, and a United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medalist, I am an accomplished trainer, clinician, and life coach. I have juggled my riding with being a wife, business partner, mentor, stepmother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, and, like you, I can go on. I have not always been successful at creating a life of balance and accolades. It is when life becomes difficult that we learn the most, and I am excited to share some of my experiences with you in hopes that this will help you live the most authentic and expressive life with (and outside of) horses possible.

I am passionate about using my lessons as an experienced horsewoman to help others achieve their horse-related goals in addition to helping people find that balance and happiness we search for while living a more fulfilling life.


My commitment to teaching and creating more enjoyment in my riding and others led me to seek help from professionals outside of my business. Learning from Tony Robbins, taking his Core 100 course as well as studying other high performers and their coaches has changed many things about my approach and perspective.

I am passionate about helping riders of all ages find the tools they need to stay confident in the show ring, develop good relationships, and find joy along with the success they long for. I look forward to hearing from you!

“I’ve worked very hard to learn all I can about how to ride, and how to teach people and train horses to move up through the levels. Over the years, I discovered that I could contribute even more by helping people find the right mindset for learning and competition.

Most recently in my career, I have been studying, attending seminars and developing a super program for helping others succeed. I don’t imagine I will ever give up training horses, however, expanding my program to include personal and performance coaching has been a truly gratifying experience for me!”
