Anne contacted me for help with hoofcare & nutrition when she was living in Bejing, and we grew to be good friends. She has been riding my Marcel and he's made amazing progress with her!
I heard about Anne through another horse professional and I brought my four year old mare to her for a month of full training. My horse Condesa had been started hard and harsh and Anne, through patience, and consistency, won her over very quickly. It was amazing to come to Annes place and see that Condesa was so committed to the work that she and Anne did everyday and she visibly enjoyed her training. As a trainer, Anne is not only professional but she gives more than is required. She finds potential, she makes a connection with the horse she is working with and nurtures it by emphasizing the positives rather than focusing on eliminating negatives. I think this allows the horse to participate more fully in the training.
