Hi! I’m Brittney,
An equine professional dedicated to helping others learn the equine language, and build programs to help the aspiring equestrian.
Growing up, I was your average horse crazy girl. I have been around horses my entire life, as my father is a trainer himself. So basically, I was born into this wonderful lifestyle. I have always wanted to be a horse trainer as well as start my own lesson program, and that is exactly what I set out to do.
I started out riding the crazy little ponies, and grew into trying several different disciplines on my journey in both the english and western world.
During my time taking lessons and studying different styles I have created several techniques to help riders become the best they can be. In addition, I not only want my students to become riders, but great horseman as well.
When working with others on learning how to best improve their riding skills, I focus on correct rider bio mechanics to best help the rider flow with their horse. I often see riders get in the way of their own horse or simply lack communication. Enhancing this connection between horse and rider is something I seek to assist others with.
When it comes to ground work with horses, I believe communication is still number one. Helping my students and other fellow equestrians create a better bond and understanding with their horse, is something that I delight in. Everyone should have a horse that they can enjoy.
That is why on December 1, 2015 I opened up the doors to CBC Therapeutic Horseback Riding Academy LLC. At the academy we teach both english and western fundamentals, horsemanship classes, online horsemanship classes, as well as train horses for clients.
I truly believe that learning to speak the equine language is the most important thing in order for us to build a successful relationship with our horses. Because of this I aspire to assist individuals build their relationship with their horse, and lesson program owners and operators create programs where they can do the same.
In order to spread this wide knowledge, I do believe that lesson programs play a huge role. A safe environment for the aspiring equestrian to go to in order to learn about horses. In order for the equine industry to grow, someone has to pass on the knowledge that is out there. What better way to do that than tp have a program that can teach all wonderful things horses…
