Gail Rayher has been training both horses and riders since 1981. While sucessfully coaching a competitive combined training Team, she gives lessons to many different levels of riders (from children to adults).
Gail is sensitive to each person's and horse's unique style of learning and requirements. Therefore, barriers normally associated with age and previous fearful experiences are routinely overcome.
