Located in the heart of Virginia horse country Michelle von Schmidt-Pauli specializes in teaching classical dressage and working equitation. While working with a variety of horses and their riders she concentrates on each individual’s needs. Training is kept relaxed with an emphasis placed on developing understanding between the horse and rider. These techniques combined with the principles of classical training produce a solid foundation that will improve any discipline.
Michelle travels throughout Northern and Southern Virginia. Please contact her to schedule a lesson at your farm or trailer-in to one of the offsite locations she teaches at around your area.
“The horse is your mirror. He never flatters you. He reflects your temperament. He also reflects your ups and downs. Don’t ever be angry with your horse: you might as well be angry with your mirror” ~ Rudolf G Binding
