About us

Our natural horsemanship journey together began in 2002. We were looking for a different way of communicating and connecting with our horses. We organized local horse play days and coordinated clinics for many years before beginning our own journey toward becoming instructors. 

We began formally teaching Parelli Natural Horsemanship in 2009, and were instructors for the next six years. 


The Parelli program was instrumental in placing an emphasis on horse behavior and psychology. We are grateful for all that we learned through the program.

In 2016, we created Foundation Horsemanship, showcasing our own unique talents as instructors. We have both competed in and won many trail challenges, and specialize in trail and obstacle preparation, liberty, and competition. 

We look forward to helping you on your own personal horsemanship journey!
