Now that Tobias is sound, and I’ve moved another family member closer to us, I’ve decided to spend more time with them—along with other friends and family. That means I will not be doing groundwork coaching—at least for now.
To those of you who allowed me to share your journey, I am forever grateful. You and your horses taught me a lot and gave me much joy. Please feel free to drop me a note from time to time and let me know how you are doing. I’d love to hear from you!
So as not to leave you hanging, I’ve given some thought to who I can recommend for your continued journey. I came up with the following three people who are in this area of Colorado:
I recommend Tia Jones in Parker. She has an indoor and outdoor arena, boarding facility, does private and group lessons and frequently hosts Parelli professionals.
Traditional In-Hand Work or Riding
I recommend Corrine Fierkens in Franktown (firstname.lastname@example.org or text at 719-337-4534). Over the last three years, I have turned to Cori whenever I’ve gotten stuck and needed another’s perspective whom I trust and respect. Now that she is back to teaching, Cori recently formed a partnership with CastleWood Equestrian Center for access to an indoor arena and boarding facility.
Classical Dressage and Western Dressage
For those who already have strong foundations in groundwork and riding, I recommend Frances Carbonnel (text at 720-979-3120) with whom I am currently taking lessons. Frances teaches out of Mariah Farms in Franktown.
