.Lori believes that a successful horse trainer/riding instructor should focus on training both horse and rider to work together as a unit and develop young individuals as horseman. A true horseman is one who cultivates self-discipline, cooperation, patience and perseverance toward a goal as emphasized by the words of the horseman Xenophon in 400 B.C.

Anything forced and misunderstood can never be beautiful.”
