About Judy

Judy have been teaching students around the world about their horses, From The Ground Up. Students of all ages and experience have come to her for guidance and knowledge on how to create a trusting partnership that is not only developed using the mind of the horse but using methods that are step by step, just like horses learn. It is through this way of teaching that we are reminded that mirroring a slow but right method for us will also help build the trust of the horse and once that trust is developed, there isn't anything that you can't ask your 

 horse to do that you can do in harmony... no fear, no bad habits, no unconfidence.  


Judy's program is unique because of this slow and steady learning format. "Your horse isn't in a hurry, it is us humans that seem to be.

Learn how to be in the moment with your horse and better yet learn to think and communicate like a horse, not a human because it is only through seeing our world through the eyes of the horse that we start to have the respect that these beautiful animals deserve.

  • safety and the confidence of the horse and human is a priority

  • lightness is the conversation between horse and human and should be invisible

  •  a solid foundation on the ground leads to the easier application of techniques of equitation in the saddle

  • teaching horses by using the lightest of pressure to activate a reaction and then a quick release to provide comfort

  • the importance of getting to the horse’s mind first and then to his feet

  • I use the natural ways of equine herd dynamics, to understand how to think as they do



  •  will always be a student


  • I teach  the human to teach their own horse

  • I am a teacher, not just an instructor
