My Name is Trish Thompson, I started riding lessons in 2012, and just couldn't get enough so I decided it was meant to be my life long passion. I'm now starting up my own career as a full time horse trainer, and riding instructor, and having a blast doing it. Horses have helped me physically, mentally and spiritually, I want others to share my passion and experience some of the amazing things horses allow us to do. I find great accomplishment in watching a horse grow and learn under my guidance, and even more success when that education in turn allows them to move on and be a successful partnership with their rider. I love doing a little bit of everything with my horses, and feel it makes them great well rounded horses. I feel the more exposure to different things, engages their minds, creates a safer more experienced horse, is fun for the rider to try new things, and all while still having a set discipline to concentrate on. For me my passion is dressage and jumping, but I always find joy in taking my horses out to the mountains, cattle penning, polocrosse, side saddle, working with obstacles and so much more!!
