Coaching Horse and Rider
Carolyn's training emphasis is biomechanics of the horse and rider with an emphasis on more Classical methods. She believes in "coaching" the horse to learn and designs lessons so the horse can more easily understand what is asked of them. Carolyn teaches the rider to work with their horse partner in a harmonious fashion
The Hoekstras owned and ran Knollwood Farm in Michigan for 16 years, standing 3 Dutch Warmblood stallions over the years, importing quality breeding stock, and being involved in Dressage Competitions.
Carolyn's students routinely scored in 60's and 70's due to her thorough training in biomechanics of the horse and incorporating this into her teaching.
The Hoekstras moved from Michigan to Coweta, Oklahoma in 2011, and have developed a outstanding training facility available now in this area.
