Hi, I’m Katharine Chrisley-Schreiber

I have spent a lifetime studying with some of the most beloved Dressage instructors on the planet. I also have trained and cared for many hundreds of horses of all breeds, ages and temperaments. I have learned simple secrets and techniques to help you bond with and communicate clearly with your horse to build a real relationship based upon mutual trust. To have a horse trust us, we must be trustworthy.

These Dressage principles work with all breeds.
