The Hunter/Jumper ring was the first place Tara began her competitive career as a young girl. She rode Jumpers until she was almost 18. At that time she was introduced to Dressage which made a huge positive impact on her jumping. She strives to teach riders and horses to be in harmony and balance, riding a course not only clean but in a steady tempo, seamlessly, and visually effortless. A solid base in dressage for both horse and rider is how this can be achieved.
