Whispering Willow Farm is a full service facility, offering Training, Showing, Lessons, Sales, Judging, Clipping and Grooming, Clinics, and Consulting.

My horse training philosophy is based on a belief in achievement through dedication and patience, qualities that I practice with horses in training and encourage in my clients. In addition to horse training and riding lessons, I also provide coaching, judging, grooming and clipping, marketing services and sales.

We offer a program to suite the needs of the equestrian whose goals are to develop good riding skills and an understanding of their equine partners, with safety always a top priority. We offer balanced seat (Western or English) riding instruction either on our well-disciplined horses and ponies or yours. Balanced Seat or Equitation involves the development of the broad spectrum of riding skills known simply as horsemanship. It is the learning and perfecting of both the physical side of riding-balance, hand control, body position, foot position, stamina, strength, and the mental side which involves grace, poise, intellect and "feel" that is necessary for exacting the maximum possible performance from a horse. Kathy is willing to travel to your barn to give lessons when time permits.
