We have been blessed with many talented photographers over the years: students who voluntarily stood out in a sweltering/ freezing arena – or slogged up and down our hilly pastures – capturing lifelong memories of camps, clinics, and shows. We’re grateful to all of them!

One such student, Delaney Witbrod, is now a professional photographer with a gift for animal portraits – see more of her fine work here.

You’ll also find illustrations throughout our online courses and printed materials (like study guides) graciously donated by Rhonda Hagy, who is a student and lifelong friend. Contact us for information about her work.

Are we lucky or WHAT?!


Why Boss Mares?

Okay, technically, a boss mare is the domiant mare in a herd, also known as the “lead mare”.

In our case, though, it’s an affectionate term for all of the wonderful adult students we’ve had over the years – most of whom were female. We made lifelong friends through our Boss Mares clinics, lessons, and HorseSense classes, and had a blast together.

We think it’s also a pretty good metaphor for riding instructors … of any gender!
