Melissa's training methods utilize
patience and persistence, great attention to detail and a keen knowledge of equestrian sport.
She places a great emphasis on equitation, not only as a means to produce "pretty" riders, but to create soft, supple, accurate, and effective riders as a result of correct body position and use of aids.
