About Elevate Sport Horses

What customers are saying about Elevate Sport Horses:

What is important to me when learning something new is to have a teacher who believes in what I can become. While working with Rachael for the past year, I have felt just that! I entered the dressage world knowing nothing, but somehow feeling that I could do it all. Rachael provides you with the right tools to take you beyond what you even think is possible. I not only purchased my beautiful horse Wednesday through Rachael, but also created an ever growing bond, beautiful trust and an amazing relationship between rider, trainer and horse. If you are looking for someone that will take what you know, perfect and elevate you to your next level after level then Rachael is your girl!!  Thank you Rachael for always believing in me and pushing me further than I thought possible. You have created a whole new amazing and beautiful world for Wednesday and I to bond and grow.” – Nicole
“Rachael has coached my daughter and me for the last year. She has supported my daughter’s love for horses and helped her to believe in her ability to reach her goals. My daughter has grown in amazing ways from the skillful coaching and positive atmosphere. Rachael has supported me in finding the passion from my youth that I had tried to ignore. After one year of coaching, it feels like I did not take a 15 year break from the saddle. By valuing the horse and rider connection, she was able to help me purchase the horse that was right, albeit not easy. Within a year, she has trained my four year old horse to love his job in both the dressage and jumping arena.” – Jessica
“I cannot express enough how grateful I am to be training under Rachael. She is an incredibly talented rider and an equally talented trainer. I love how she breaks things down step-by-step and uses analogies to make sure I really understand, all the while being positive and supportive.” – Kristin
“I started training with Rachael in February 2015 and was completely new to dressage and English riding. I’d ridden my whole life but had never had formal instruction and had only ridden Western. My initial goal was pretty vague, to improve my riding, and at the time I only expected to work with Rachael for a few months. I soon realized I had a lot to learn (and un-learn!) but really enjoyed the lessons and working toward competing at dressage shows. Rachael is patient, punctual, detailed, and tough yet fair. She is approachable and accessible – with a great sense of humor – and tailors her training to the individual. The other riders at the barn are great, with a real sense of camaraderie, the school horses are well-trained and fun to ride, and Rachael is constantly making improvements to the Elevate facilities. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Elevate to another adult amateur of any level who wants to improve their riding in a fun, effective, supportive environment.” – Amber
