Instructor and Horse Care Specialist
Christa loves horses, nature, mountain biking, art, icecream, and her dog, Ishca. She is passionate about dressage, and using it to help horse and rider develop lifelong physical and emotional balance. Dressage is for every rider and every horse! She has her USDF Bronze and Silver Medals, but more recently has delved into clicker training with horses, and learning about Applied Behavior Analysis. She is so grateful that there is more to learn everyday. She loves sharing her love of horses with kids through Methow Valley Riding.
MVRU also receives additional staff support from Jared Kutz. We are grateful for his hard work!
