"A good horsewoman is a good horseman whether performing English, Western, or Dressage. There is a broad and common ground between the different types of riding. Having ridden English, Western, and Dressage over the years my experiences have contributed to my overall teaching technique."
Therapeutic riding uses horses for the purpose of enhancing cognitive, physical, emotional and social well being of people with disabilities. Laura is a PATH certified registered instructor.
"Understanding the horse is the essence of harmonious horsemanship."
Sienna Stables is a proud sponsor of English, Western, and Dressage horse shows at their facility. Laura also manages show teams that compete in shows with GHHJA (Great Houston Hunter Jumper Association), THJA (Texas Hunter Jumper Association) and HDS (Houston Dressage Society).
