“… I’ve learned and understood much better the mechanics of collection and importance of correct seat. Elizabeth’s directions were very clear and specific. She helped me to achieve significant improvement in effectiveness of my hands and leg cues. On top of that her patience and cheerful, pleasant attitude made the whole experience more enjoyable.” ~ Maggie

I am excited to be a board member on the Lakeside Equestrian Park!!! We really hope to help create a facility that will serve our San Diego Equestrians to the fullest!!!!
Help support this by coming to the many events planned in 2018 and other opportunities!
My goal as an instructor is to foster creative thought processes and training strategies that allow us to realize how we can make clearer aids creating less tension between horse and rider while maintaining quality balanced work.

Show Results, Tips & Resources
This is a GREAT reference for show / show ring rules!!!! I just tripped across it but very cool info from USDF!!
“Thank you to owner/trainers Elizabeth Johnson and Katie Johnson for organizing the 8-horse adjusting clinic today at Artisan Dressage in El Cajon. I am continually impressed with how you both look at the whole horse for possible sources of discomfort, both inside & out. You gals, your horses, and your clients ROCK!”
