Leslie has 20 years of being an instructor and trainer and has a diverse background which all contribute to her balanced and intuitive approach to teaching and horse training. Her family was always involved in the Arabian circuit and through that, Leslie has done everything from Western to Park horses at a National Level, winning 5 National Championships as a youth rider and multiple National Top Tens and Regional Wins and Awards. Leslie also participated in Pony Club and 4-H as a youth and always took dressage and jumping lessons through her young adult years.
Leslie has been training horses and coaching riders from the age of 15 (20 years now!) And has enjoyed much success with her students, and has trained instructors to extend the amount of students we can teach. From the students who want to compete to the ones who are just in it for the education and fun, Feather’s students enjoy our positive teaching style and our methods of helping each student grow in confidence, strength, knowledge and horsemanship skill.
Horses in training with Leslie enjoy her gentle, fair and concise leadership and they flourish mentally and physically under her care. Leslie can help solve a variety of anxiety and manners problems in horses. She has helped many horses be able to perform their best mentally and physically and has healed many “relationships” between horse and handler/rider.
