So much of what I’ve learned during my lessons with Barbi goes far beyond the dressage arena. Besides the incredible feeling of those ‘Aha!’ moments when things just click and understanding dawns, under Barbi’s tutelage I’ve developed a sense of focus that is impacting every area of my life. And with that increased focus has come a new confidence, a real sense of accomplishment and a knowing that I am getting beyond the fear of what could happen and into the place of what is happening.

And what is happening is that I’m having the time of my life!

So thank you Barbi—for your patience, your insight, and your steadfast belief in the changing power of dressage for not just for the horse, but for the rider.
