My family has worked with Lisette for over 4yrs. We originally found her to give our daughter English riding lessons, but were so impressed with how she worked with our daughter and her horse, that my husband and I decided to take lessons with Lisette too.

Lisette has a great ability to see what a horse needs, and determine the best way to achieve those goals. She has always been invaluable in helping us assess any underlying issues that may be going on with our horses or us as riders, and helped us work through those problems. Over the years we’ve had OTTB, Arabs, ponies, QH’s, and paints. Regardless of what problem/issue that we’ve run into with our horses, Lisette has always been able to help us work through those issues when other trainers have not known what to do.

Last Fall we had Lisette put 60 days on two of our geldings, and were amazed at the job she did. Lisette was able to turn one of the geldings that was lazy, and didn’t want to go forward, into a horse that listened, was willing to work, and brought his level from a beginner to intermediate/or more. The second horse was spooky, reactive and ran away under saddle. After 60days this horse was calm, relaxed, and doesn’t run away anymore.

We have always enjoyed working with Lisette, she has always been honest, knowledgable, direct, organized, and fair. Lisette really works with the horse and rider, guiding and helping them work together as a team.
