Christa believes in establishing a firm foundation of basic skills for both horse and rider. Christa’s experience training with top dressage riders at Stillpoint Farm in Wellington, FL has given her not only a love of dressage, but also an appreciation of a strong dressage foundation and the important role it plays in the world of Eventing today.
Christa credits the trainers she has worked with for developing her talents fully and slowly, and she believes in doing the same for her students. Christa looks to see the combination of horse and rider bored and completely confident competing at a level before considering moving up to the next level. She also believes in schooling a full level above the level at which a horse and rider compete to ensure complete and total confidence in competition and to avoid the possibility of being over faced.
