On the horse psychology side, she has worked extensively with Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt, Harry Whitney, Pat Parelli, and Buck Brannamen. Lisa has also completed 6 Equine full-body dissections with bio-mechanic/physiology specialist Dr. Deb Bennet. She has ridden and taught western pleasure, halter/ showmanship, trail, driving, pleasure riding, hunt seat, pony club, eventing and hunters “A” circuit. Lisa has run large pack stations and trained search and rescue riders, with an emphasis on safety for both horse and rider. She is especially gifted in teaching, as her ability to “read” a horse extends to an ability to “read” a rider and work with their unique personalities and needs.
