Mary K Whitmer, client: “I sent my young warmblood “Clipper” to Yvonne for training after a back injury made it difficult for me to continue riding him. I had checked out many trainers, but selected Yvonne based on her experience in dressage, eventing, and jumpers with many different types of horses, and her willingness to tailor a training program to meet his needs.
(This was the once-in-a-lifetime horse that I bred and trained myself, and I had real concerns about sending him away.) I was extremely pleased with the results. Under Yvonne’s program, with her positive and patient but firm approach, Clipper blossomed. He progressed very quickly both over fences and in dressage, gaining confidence as he learned, while staying happy in his work. When I made the tough decision to sell him, Yvonne understood my concerns about finding the “right” buyer, and he is now in a great new home. I would definitely send another horse to Yvonne for training and/or sale, and wholeheartedly recommend her.”
