"My personal essence as a trainer is to create new horses, to start babies and get them to the finish line, being the best broke performance horses they can be, keeping the flow of quality horse’s production moving forward constantly.
I see every horse like a puzzle. Even though there are 'types' of minds each one of them is unique, therefore there are always different pieces of the puzzle to develop. Keeping my mind open and accessible to different techniques for each individual horse, I can gain their trust leading to increast effort, abilities and talent as they follow my lead.
I am very competitive and I believe that this is a characteristic that is necessary in order to be the best you can be and reach the highest levels of performance. My perfectionism will always continue to push me to achieve more with the goal of being the best in my field.
My philosophy on training, is not just the ability to show people how to ride a horse, not just buying and selling horses whenever they show a problem or change of attitude - every "problem" is an opportunity to learn from and become more capable.
Being a trainer includes knowing how to address every problem, knowing where it comes from, giving the horses new tools to deal with and solve those issues, teaching riders to think, not just follow instructions and open their perspective to really understanding what they are doing and why they receive each reaction from their horse, better or worse.
Being a trainer is the power to not only maintain but improve horses and riders during every training session, increasing their confidence and skill level."
