Mindy loves to blend technical/classical skill with awareness,"the feel," and connection with the horse as a sentient being. 

Mindy is constantly asking herself the question, "what do I have to offer the equestrian community?"  She aims to blend her mastery of holistic education (teaching the whole person, not just a certain subject) with her yoga and riding instruction. 

In 2018, Mindy also added therapeutic riding to her list of equestrian loves and is a PATH International Certified Therapeutic Riding Instructor.
