Joanna Niles has a passion for working with young horses starting with creating strong foundations. Using principles of the classical dressage training pyramid, Joanna applies simple, foundational concepts to help horses of all backgrounds and training levels to achieve a better understanding of their human partners.
Well versed in hunter, jumper, equitation, and racing, as well as experience with eventing, dressage, and western disciplines, Joanna believes the key to any reliable riding horse is a sound understanding of the rider's expectations. Creating a relaxed learning environment and establishing a positive response to all aids, Joanna quickly identifies gaps in training and works to establish a middle ground of understanding between the horse and rider.
Working closely with owners, honest, friendly, upfront, and affordable training is the standard at EquiSTRONG to ensure clients can achieve their goals in a thorough but efficient manner with their equine partners.
