Lessons and Training



We are currently participating in the Driver Proficiency Program as offered through the Carriage Assoc. of America (CAA). This program is based on the British Driving Society (BDS) Driver Competence Program.  The goal is to promote the sport of driving based on safety and education.  Certificates can be earned as skills progress thru levels I, II, III.


We offer lessons to all ages and skill levels, from little kids thru the ‘vintage’ adults, beginner to advanced.  I’m excellent working with timid riders. 


I work with minis to draft horses, from singles to multiples.  I specialize in pleasure driving, obstacles, and combined driving.


I also have lesson driving horses available.





Here at Carpe Diem Farm I offer riding and driving training for equines, from large to small.    My training methods stress gentle, quiet obedience with a willingness to please.  I specialize in confidence building for both  horse & rider/ driver, and I always stress safety with lots of patience. Unlike other training facilities, I pursue quality over quantity.  You won’t have anyone but the trainer working 100% with your horses.




Offering lessons in basic horsemanship riding skills for english and western, practical trail (for trail trials and Cowboy Challenge skills), basic dressage, sidesaddle and jumping.




I am available to do clinics on a variety of different topics.  Please contact me for a personalized clinic for your club or stable.
