Many people feel doubt when training their own horse. I teach people how to understand, enjoy and successfully train their own horses.

AQHA Journal story on Stacy Westfall!
Stacy Westfall laughs, humbly, explaining how she almost didn’t get up the nerve to reach out to legendary three-day eventer Denny Emerson. She’d had her horses on the East Coast and thought maybe she could stop by his farm in Vermont while she was nearby. Eventing isn’t necessarily in Stacy’s wheelhouse, but horses and learning are. After a gracious invitation from Denny–because, really, who wouldn’t want Stacy to come to their barn?–she gave a mini clinic to Denny’s working students, and then he asked her to hop aboard one of his horses to play with counting strides to a jump...
Feedback from Students
Growing up, I shared a love of horses with my mother but neither of us knew what we were doing. Over the years we dealt with horses that wouldn’t load into trailers, wouldn’t pick up their leads and wouldn’t stand still to be mounted. I fell off more times than I could count and was bitten, stepped on and run away with before I was old enough to drive a car. There were many, many good times too. My favorite childhood memories all involve horses (and one ornery pony.)
It took me years to develop to the point where I became a successful competitor in a male-dominated industry. The beauty of this is that it proved that true strength is a mental game more than a physical one.
I believe in creating win-win-win relationships. I can show you how to reach your goals faster if you’re willing to put in the work. Whether you love trail riding, have goals of showing or would someday love to understand bridleless riding, I can show you the way.
…and yes I still clean stalls.
