Carmella's Horse Expertise

I've been working with horses since the age of 7. I have experience in a number of disciplines such as hunters, equitation, show-jumping, dressage, and foxhunting. I’ve spent countless hours over the years training horses and refining my techniques to be as effective as possible. My training techniques are focused not only on producing the correct behaviors but also on maintaining strong and positive relationships with my horses. I’m also a certified equine massage therapist!
