Marian's diverse background includes dressage, Vaquero horsemanship, Iberian halter and a specialty in behavior modification beginning with weanlings through mature horses. Her training program is customized for each horse's individual needs and creates a calm, confident, and willing partner that looks forward to working each day. Marian's vast experience includes working with Rex Peterson (famous Hollywood Horse trainer); Michael Lieberg, Hilda Gurney, Howard Peet (Iberian Halter), Ray Hunt, and has studied German Dressage. Marian is currently training horses according to the French Classical School. She uses the Vaquero/Buckaroo style of horsemanship for problem solving and confidence building after which she transitions the horses into a more classical school of training to createe balanced, light and willing riding partners.
Marian is currently accepting horses (any breed/any age) in training for groundwork/behavior modification; fundamental dressage, Iberian Halter (ANCCE, IALHA and Sporthorse in Hand); and general pleasure riding. She also offers lessons for individuals looking to improve their confidence in the saddle and on the ground with their equine companion.
Marian's fundamental groundwork translates into developing the 'whole' horse. She has been working with our Sommer Ranch foals for many years now, offering them the best possible start to their future equine careers. We now have the pleasure of watching her transform the babies she once worked with into mature horses under saddle and into the show ring.
