We have two horses. each with different problems. After
just one session with Nancy, she obtained instant results. She is teaching us better communication, trust and respect with
our horses. We are very happy we found her! She is a great horsewoman, trainer and person!! Therefore we nicknamed her the
"Horse Goddess" Sincerely, Mark & Cheri,

I attended the workshop you presented near Amherst, MA with my mom, Judith. I want to
say that I so very much enjoyed what you have to give us, Nancy. Yes the work you were able to do with the horses during
that morning WAS IMPRESSIVE!! And yet, it only seems natural, as you proceeded to speak about the horses language, their
hierarchy within a herd, and how they've learned to respond to humans. I've been able to put to use some of this information
already. Further, I have the greatest respect for what and especially how you have to say about working and owning horses. The horses are relying on you to speak up for their benefits. Nancy, please keep doing what
you are doing! It is important work, not only for the horses, but for their humans, so they can become more confident

Nancy at my friend's house where she was working on farrier issues with a horse. I was mesmerized watching Nancy work
with this horse, almost as if they performing an integral dance with each other.
I called Nancy the next day and explained my situation....a very domineering
horse and my concern on how to handle him.
Nancy taught me how to communicate with my horse using his language.
She emphasized the importance of timing, pressure and release, and how to read the signs of a submissive horse. It
was my entrance into his world!
Through Nancy's professionalism and knowledge of horse behavior I was able to earn Buster's "respect" and
become his "trusted leader". She would go that extra mile to always leave on a positive note.
Nancy IS a True Horse Gentler.

My horse Roxy had 7 homes in just
5 years before we found each other. Unfortunately Roxy had major trust issues and behavioral problems when I got her.
She had no respect for me on the ground or in the saddle. I was bucked off 3 times and almost smacked in the face twice
when Roxy reared up on me. My farrier knew the struggles with Roxy first hand. We unfortunately had to resort
to twitching her to get the job done, which was traumatic for her as well as me. I was at a dead end and had nowhere
to turn and no one I could trust. Then I was referred to Nancy. When Nancy came out to evaluate my horse there
was an instant connection between the three of us. I knew almost immediately that Nancy was going to be exactly the
right person to work with us both. Nancy not only worked through all the issues with Roxy, but taught me how to better
communicate with my horse by understanding things from the horse's perspective and using the language of the horse.
In just six sessions my horse's behavior has done a complete 360. My horse and I have such a phenomenal relationship
now. We have been truly blessed to have such an extraordinary woman like Nancy work with us. I am forever grateful
for the relationship she helped me to build with my horse. Nancy has changed our lives!
I have been a Farrier for 30 years…I have known Nancy for 10+ years…in a very
short time with this method the horses seemed to understand what she was asking them to do. Nancy’s
method is strong and very effective. I would recommend this method for any horse and rider… But,
you need to remember that it is not just the horse that needs to learn, it is also the owner.

Nancy is a great horse trainer. With Nancy’s guidance,
I was able to build a more successful and trusting relationship with my horse, on the ground as well as in the saddle.
By becoming familiar with the “language of the horse” and understanding horse behavior, it
became possible for me to have a conversation with my horse. These improvements eventually translated directly
into the saddle. Our relationship started to become one built more on trust rather than force. Nancy has provided me with valuable tools that I will continue to use as long
as I own horses. The benefits of the Natural Horsemanship techniques are endless and adaptable to any situation
that you and your horse might have. I would highly recommend working with Nancy.

The day I met Nancy my 9 year old thoroughbred gelding
named Sugar refused to go on the trailer. According to Nancy he had no respect for me
as a leader. How insulting! Except, that’s what my alpha gelding needed
and wanted, “a Leader”. I was totally frustrated, but open minded to learn a new way to communicate
with my 1000 lb, beast. She worked with Sugar and then taught
me to work with him using body language to communicate with him, as opposed to verbalizing; the human way to
communicate. Now, I am moving his feet so that he respects me. When I walk up to the
back of the trailer and point, he steps on and we are off for a new adventure! I am much more confident,
Sugar is much more respectful and obedient, but most importantly I am safer on the ground and in the saddle.
Thanks to Nancy, I have become the leader!
