Meet Tommy

Meet Tommy, trainer and instructor.

Tommy started riding in the hunter ring and soon graduated into a career as a local eventer. She has also explored the world of western riding while working with Arabians for halter training & showing. Since 1995, Tommy has focused her studies on the art of classical dressage, and is now a full-time trainer and instructor. Her education as a biologist/geologist spurred her to enhance her knowledge of the biomechanics and adaptations of the biological organism—specifically horses and our physiological connections to them. As the owner and operator of There be Dragons Farm, Tommy now dedicates her time to sharing this knowledge with others.

Maggie and Firefly

Meet Maggie, trainer and instructor.

Maggie began riding when she was eight years old, and rode at an eventing barn until she got her first horse, and switched to a hunt seat instructor. She discovered her love of dressage in a college riding class at The University of New Hampshire, where she graduated with a degree in Equine Studies and concentrated on Therapeutic horseback riding. Therapeutic riding gave her an appreciation and greater understanding for how much horses and riders can influence each other physically and mentally. After riding with Tommy, Maggie realized how much correct biomechanics can improve a riders ability to communicate with their horse, and strives to help her students with that same concept.
