Dorothy Smith: “Yvonne combines the best of what a student should seek in an instructor, displaying both an aptitude for explanation and a unique ability to address each rider's personal needs.

As a competitor, she is strong in all three phases, but it is my personal belief that a rider like Yvonne, who has a deep background and love of dressage, makes for the ultimate modern eventer ― capable of the instant response required in dressage, and therefore able to ride the very technical questions that are being asked on today's courses. This ability translates directly from the instructor to the student, and Yvonne's students exhibit these same qualities.

If you are looking for a great coach, one that is positive in her approach, one that will guide you to whatever level you want to reach, and one that has a depth to her instruction, then seek out Yvonne.”
