Testimonials & Reviews


"I highly recommend this talented trainer from starting young horses to training under saddle. Lisa and I spent many years working together as she was the primary trainer from foal training to backing under saddle. I was especially impressed with Lisa's skills with long lining (a lost art in my opinion) and credit the consistent and excellent contact the young horses displayed once ridden, setting the foundation for the future."

"I have learned to ride on really well trained horses at Burgeon Training (not your average burned out lesson pony).  I have booked a lesson almost every week and definitely keep learning new skills.  I knew some basics of riding but Lisa, as a dressage rider and jumper, knows the nuances that you cannot learn on your own.

Instead of spending your time in a lesson getting a horse to move, Lisa's horses have energy and response: 5 stars for continuing to build my confidence."

*Problem Solving

"Lisa is the 100% best at what she does. 

My 12 yr OTTB was having serious anxiety (violent and stubborn) with my straight load trailer. He would not get in no matter what we tried - food, positive reinforcement, extra hands. When we could get him in he would blow back, break butt bars and injure himself. 

Lisa worked with him patiently and at the end of one month he now self loads happily and stands like a gentleman in the trailer munching on hay until a verbal cue to back is given. 

Lisa not only helped him figure out that the trailer was not scary but also gave me the tools to continue to be successful when I took him of property. 

I cannot recommend her enough!"

"I'm blown away by lisas talent with young horses, she is truly gifted! After only 10 days of training my horse is transforming from a intense nervous wreck into a relaxed and happy horse, I am so pleased with her approach and the results!"

"Lisa broke my young horse years ago helping him become a very solid citizen on the ground and under saddle. She was excellent then with the horses and their owners then, so I can only imagine how fantastic she must be now with even more great experience under her belt!"
