New Client Evaluation
90 minute appointment that begins in the cross ties or stall with a physical evaluation and discussion of history, acute issues if any, goals for training, etc. When safe, you will show Natalie what you've been working on, and then Natalie will work the horse - a combination of ground work, lungeing, and riding when appropriate. Based on the information discussed and discovered during the evaluation, Natalie will create a recommended training plan.
30 or 60 minute lessons in dressage, jumping, cross country, in-hand training, and more. The purpose of these sessions is to educate the rider/handler.
~ASTM/SEI helmet required for all mounted lessons.
30 - 60 minute training sessions with Natalie either in hand or under saddle. The purpose of these sessions is to educate the horse.
Energy Healing & Bodywork
Natalie uses a blend of Reiki, Natural Alignment, and Intuitive Healing to facilitate homeostasis for horse and rider. Total health and wellness includes physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual soundness. Natalie can help horses and riders with a myriad of blockages such as anxiety, stress, physical discomfort, and more. For horses, sessions usually take place in the stall or crossties. For riders, sessions will be at your home (or a quiet, comfortable space in your barn) on a massage table. Clients should wear comfortable clothing.
Injury Rehab & Soundness Training
With the intention of improving fitness and strength for long term resilience, Natalie will create a customized program consisting of some combination of bodywork, in-hand work, under saddle training, and lessons. Natalie will coach the rider/handler through a progressive and systematic implementation of the training plan. (Note: horses recovering from an injury must have vet clearance for returning to work. Natalie will work with your vet's guidelines/restrictions.)
Equine Retirement Maintenance
Custom lesson & training plan to keep senior equines happy, healthy, and sound. While some senior horses love to be ridden, others are retired from mounted work altogether, but they still benefit from light exercise and topline strength. Either way, Natalie will develop a plan perfect for your retiree!
Natalie provides competition coaching for dressage shows, horse trials (eventing), and Pony Club events.
