Mary spent her life riding many different disciplines including working cattle on the LBJ Ranch as a young woman, trick training, Doma Vaquera and finally her love, Dressage.
In addition to training her own personal horses, she trains outside horses for breeders and individuals for a number of disciplines including Dressage, Breed shows and Exhibition. Although Mary enjoys working with all breeds, her passion is for the Baroque Pure Spanish horses she breeds, trains and shows Nationally. "the Bravado they exhibit is equally matched by their even temperaments and elegant movement they offer!" Because of their naturally collected movement, their training structure is different from the big moving Warmbloods that dominate todays Dressage arenas at the lower levels. It has been a joy to watch as people find out how incredibly wonderful these horses are to own and ride, making the Baroque horse the next BIG cycle in the world of Dressage competition!
