At an early age, Alicia decided that she wanted to become a horse trainer. Alicia showed internationally and developed show jumpers and hunters for people of all ages and abilities. She rode in many clinics given by Nick Karazissis, Bernie Traurig, Chris Kappler, and Diane Carney. She eventually opened her own facility and developed the 2008 Equitation Champion of Arizona, winning at West World of Scottsdale. Around that time is when she discovered Natural Horsemanship. She closed down her barn and took a few years off from teaching to hone her natural skills. Alicia refers to natural horsemanship as “honest horsemanship” where she puts her relationship with the horse first, and her goals second. She has attended many Parelli clinics over the years and a highlight of her life is when she was able to ride her horses with Buck Brannaman in 2017. You can find Alicia in the EZ Ride ring and also developing our EZ Ride horses for assured safety for our riders.
