Brittney Eicher

Brittany Eicher has been teaching for more than a decade and has a unique way of connecting and communicated with her clients.
She enjoys to laugh and keeps a lighthearted vibe in the arena while still digging deep into excellent horsemanship.  Brittany does a great job of breaking concepts down into bite sized pieces and explaining them in real life terms for her clients.  She also knows that silence and practice help a student grasp exercises and isn't afraid to walk away and give a client time to puzzle out a task she has given them, only stepping in when needed.  She allows clients to learn at their own pace, yet balancing that with a desire to edge you a bit out of your comfort zone at times so that you are gaining new skills and insight.
