Nicole has worked with, trained, and shown horses from an early age and her mission is to make our presence in our horses lives a positive experience through mutual respect, trust, consistency, and compassion.  Harsh methods, tack, and tactics are not utilized and are not allowed in her program.  Nicole truly believes that only through patience and understanding can we achieve greatness in ourselves and our horses. 

Nicole has been training professionally since graduating from UW River Falls in 2001 with a Bachelor’s in Animal Science with an Equine emphasis and a Business Option.  Specializing in starting young horses, resolving behavioral issues, & finishing horses for the show pen or trail, Nicole works with all breeds and ages of horse and all ages and levels of riders.   In 2016 Nicole published a book “Behavioral Issues in Horses: Why Do They Do That?” and expanded more heavily into giving clinics.  Most recently Nicole was a clinician at the 2019 Midwest Horse Fair and has coached her equestrian team to winning the 2018 and 2019 WIHA State Championships in Madison.
