Patti is a native Arizonian which is kind of rare to find since it seems that everybody that lives here comes from somewhere else. She came to us almost two years ago somewhat frustrated with her previous riding instructor. She started our program using our lesson horses, then bought Teddy from us about a year ago. Teddy is a big handsome quarter horse that had about 3 months of work in our program before she purchased him. Two lessons a week with Teddy, and working him another 2-3 days has resulted in a lot of progress for both Teddy and Patti. Patti is at a slight disadvantage with hip problems, but her seat has shown continued improvement. She is in the process of building a new house and horse set up that she hopes will be ready this fall. After the move she plans on doing trail competition and possibly Cowboy Dressage with Teddy. Patti has been successful because of her eagerness to learn, and willingness to put in the time and hard work.
