Hailing from the Midwest, Mary grew up in 4-H and AQHA competitions. After training with such legends as John Lyons, she went on to train and compete successfully for over 10 years in western and hunter disciplines, excelling at working with young and green horses. Mary loves creating versatile horses that are confident in any ring. After hosting multiple 4-H clinics, Mary found a new passion, passing her knowledge on, through lessons and clinics, to other riders and the next generation!

After moving to Tennessee in 2001, she has been offering affordable lessons and training to the East Tennessee community. Mary has continued in her pursuit of knowledge studying Natural Horsemanship methods and focusing on a classical Dressage education, both of which she carries over and applies to every horse and rider for every discipline she teaches.
