lee1I have invested many years and a large amount of effort into my education and self development – personally and professionally. My goal is to share my knowledge with my students, so that they are happy, successful, competent horsemen. Natural horsemanship should be present in all disciplines of the horse industry, whether it is recreation or performance-based.
