Libby focuses her "gentle approach to horsemanship" on helping people help their horses. While many fine clinicians excel at straightening out a horse's problems, Libby possesses the gift of being able to translate what the horse presents into language the human can understand. Armed with this understanding, people can begin to recognize where, and how, to build on the good in their horse.
Horses are curious, creative, and willing creatures, as interested in the horsemanship process as their people are. Libby encourages students to be creative and in-tune with themselves, so they learn to see, evaluate, and adjust situations with their horse. Horse and human are thus both mentally involved in the process, and this result transcends mechanical technique. Libby teaches humans the often elusive concept of how to set up an answer for the horse to discover for himself.
Libby's extensive and varied experience enables her to assist horses and their people effectively in a variety of disciplines - from trail to dressage; reining to jumping. She brings with her three decades of teaching experience from children to advanced adults. Her own innate creativity allows her to adjust her teaching strategy to each horse and human pair; her caring style ensures positive results.
