Lisa's teaching style is extremely detail oriented, she conveys her experience and wisdom with enthusiasm. “Do it with a smile” has always been Lisa’s motto. Her ability to articulate corrections and recommendations for improvement make her an outstanding clinician for auditors as well.
"I have yet to find a perfect horse. My objective is to work with their mental capabilities and gain their trust. That is how I come to understand them, which enables me to work with their physical deficiencies, if any. This takes time and patience...... Professional trainers know how many hours they must spend working on and improving the horse's weaknesses and mental capabilities. Think long-term, and you will not only have a horse that understands you but also one that enjoys what he is doing. This is the key to harmony." Lisa Wilcox
