" Cassie and Arliss provide differing but complimentary styles, both in coaching and training. This breadth and depth of knowledge and experience means that they are able to work with such a wide range of horses and riders, that there truly is something for everyone. For me personally they have helped me develop as rider, taking this nervous older rider, with a lifetime of bad habits, and helping her achieve success at 2nd Level in Western Dressage. They have been patient, encouraging, and darn right direct when needed, a successful combination.I have seen many horse and rider combinations blossom under their care, and finding the right horse and rider pairing is another skill that Cassie has. If you are looking to improve your skill set, from beginner to serious competition rider, this will be the ones to go to."

"I've had the privilege of taken lessons with Cass & Arliss for eventing. My dressage & jumping scores are constantly increasing. They have always been professional, knowledgeable, kind & will be sadly missed. We are loosing a valuable team in Saskatchewan. Best of luck with your endeavors & hopefully we'll see you next year! Thank you for showing me & taking me to the next level!!"
"I recently spent four days training with Cassie and Arliss. I had an unplanned horse accident and ended up bringing a very green horse with me instead of my regular trusty steed. Cassie is an incredible and patient teacher who is firm but encouraging, pushing or stepping back as needed. She got the very most out of both me and my young guy. I went from being nervous to ride him, to jumping a line with an oxer in four days! I feel completely comfortable taking my young guy home to continue to work. I built a real trust for Cassie and what she suggests. My horse was encouraged as much as I was, with Cassie demanding I reward him enthusiastically for small steps as much as the big ones. He fed off that and built his confidence and steadiness very quickly. Cassie has such a wealth of knowledge to draw on. She comes to lessons prepared but can also adapt quickly to what is happening in the moment. She gives you tangible, helpful tools for your riding toolbox. She was also honest and skillful with identifying a weakness in my horse's confirmation so that I can realistically take him forward in the best health possible.I only took two brief lessons with Arliss but I really appreciated his calm demeanor when things were not going as ideally as hoped. He was able to work me through a challenging lesson with specific exercises and persistence without being condescending. I wholeheartedly recommend. They legitimately want the best for you and your horse and work towards making both horse and rider the best they can be. "
