You could say I was born into the horse world, my mother had horses before I was born and I was put on my first horse before I could even walk (riding by myself since I was two years old) I started taking riding lessons and showing Dressage and 4-H when I was eight years old. When I was 12 years old I started training my horses and my mother’s horses.  I started my business (North Country Haven, LLC.) in 2001 when I was 16 years old.

I have had great success with the methods I use when training horses, I practice Natural Horsemanship along with some Classical Dressage techniques as well as some of my own techniques. I feel it is better for the horse’s mental as well as their physical status to use the Natural Horsemanship methods in their training. I specialize in forming a good foundation on young horses as well as horses that have missed essential elements in their training.

I went to MN School of Horseshoeing to further my knowledge in the horse industry and graduated in the spring of 2006 as a certified Farrier.

I currently own a small Horse Training Facility in Makinen,MN. Equipped with a 65′ x 120′ outdoor arena, 50′ round pen, 3 large pastures with run in shelter and 3 small pastures with run in shelter
