"The care at Catlin is second to none. Cathie Cross, the barn owner, lives on the property and oversees the management of the horses and the facilities. Every horse under their care is treated as if it were their own. They pay attention to every detail, including fly masks and fly spray, blankets, electrolytes, any special dietary needs, the maintenance of the arena footing, and the upkeep and cleanliness of the facility. I'm happy; my horse is happy. Life is good!"
Our Trainer, Lindsey Culver, is very passionate about teaching the correct biomechanics necessary for the progress of each horse and rider. She feels that there is a large road block in the way of Adult Amateurs as many feel that riding like the Pros is truly not attainable for anyone other than the Pros. She believes that this just simply isn't true and strives to empower her students to believe this in every lesson. Through Lindsey's systematic approach in teaching the correct rider biomechanics and analyzing each rider's instabilities, strengths and weaknesses, her students are finding a level of excitement in their education that they never thought was an option for them. She develops programs that are unique to each individual, off the horse in our Stability Studio located in the indoor riding arena, for honing important skills necessary for confident riding including stability, balance, tone, and elasticity. Knowing that every horse and rider have their own unique personality and learning style, Lindsey understands that each individual needs to be taught differently. She creates different training programs per the needs of the horse and rider. Many programs include mini sessions in our Stability Studio at the beginning of their riding lesson. This same approach is given to each horse in a training program with Lindsey. Her focus is to develop suppleness and strength in the horse's often overlooked deep core and back muscles prior to adding the more common power and speed training. Lindsey' works closely with Simon Cocozza, the developer and author of Core Conditioning for Horses and has been made by Simon, one of his Approved Coaches in his program. She is currently the only Approved Coach in the US. Lindsey's high enthusiasm for the development of each individual horse and rider team is what drives her to help riders produce the results they never dreamed possible!
"Lindsey helped me find a talented young horse that was within my budget, and who is very well-suited for me. Lindsey believes that he and I can achieve my goals of showing FEI. I have full confidence in Lindsey's riding and teaching abilities, and her attention to detail and her full commitment to me (and all her students) make her an excellent instructor. She has a professional approach to her job; she has a schedule for her lessons and her training rides, and I can count on her to be on time and fully focused on me and my horse in each lesson."
