From her early childhood, Brenda has studied and excelled in classical dressage, show jumping, cross country jumping and eventing. She has owned and shown horses throughout her life. She was employed at several show barns in the US, training horses and coaching students. She has over 40 years direct experience with horses.
Brenda was first introduced to the philosophy of Monty Robert natural horsemanship at Ben Marten Stables in California at the age of 14 and competed for two years in western pleasure. She then went on to classical dressage, show jumping and eventing. She was reintroduced to Natural Horsemanship in 2008 when she hosted her first seminar with David Lichman at Establo San Rafael. Since then she has studied Natural Horsemanship and has hosted many Parelli seminars. Brenda incorporates Natural Horsemanship techniques into all of her training and teaching.
Since coming to Costa Rica in 2004, she has built the beautiful equestrian facilities of Establo San Rafael where she practices her horsemanship. You will be inspired to see her connection and communication with horses.
