Cindy Thaxton

Head Dressage Trainer

Cindy began her professional journey in 1985. She has a heart for developing a partnership between the horse and rider. Harmony is created by focusing on communication and using bio-mechanics to balance horse and rider. Her knowledge of the human and equine anatomy, combined with years of studying classical dressage, brings a unique eye to a lesson or clinic. With a desire to help others enjoy riding a happy horse, Cindy is pleased to cater to non-competitive student goals with the same enthusiasm as she brings to her competitive riders. She works with beginners thru Grand Prix.
