    Suzie has been involved in the horse industry for most of her life both as a rider/trainer and as an Equine Veterinary Technician. Most recently, Suzie was a trainer at Taking the Reins, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to fostering the physical and mental well being of at risk teenage girls through equestrian activities. Suzie rode at the Paddock Riding Club as a youth with Randy Redmer. She has attended clinics with Brian Sabo, Hilda Gurney, Robert Dover and most recently with Kristina Harrison.

    Suzie maintains the philosophy that when it comes to horses and riders, human safety is first, horse safety is second and everything else is third. She is extremely excited to have joined the extraordinary group of trainers at Flintridge. Taking over the beginner-riding program provides Suzie the opportunity to combine her two favorite things-children and horses.

    An experienced educator, Suzie has worked at The Buckley School, LAUSD and directed summer camps. Suzie has an associate’s degree in liberal studies and a bachelor’s degree in child development from California State University-Northridge.

    Suzie offers introductory private lessons for new beginner riders – for both adults and children. Her lessons emphasize safe horse handling from the ground up. Introductory lessons include grooming, tacking up, and basic riding skills. Lessons are designed to instill confidence and allow riders to achieve their own personal riding goals whether for pleasure or the show ring.

    Suzie starts her students using the balance seat as this position provides the student with the flexibility to choose the desired style of riding that is best suited for their ultimate goal, whether dressage or hunt seat. Suzie is available for private and group lessons.
