In this episode I talk with DN instructor Michelle Young, from Canada.

In becoming a DN instructor, she realized how DN clinics can be much different than what some people may expect. So we’ll chat about why clinics in general are valuable, and what makes DN clinics so special.

About the Guest:

Michelle Young is a trainer and instructor who helps create connection and understanding between horses and humans. She specializes in dressage, healthy biomechanics, foundational training, and young horse development. 

Michelle’s mission is to help horses and the people who love them find more relaxation and connection. To create confident horses and empowered students. To educate both horse and rider to find healthy movement, and mental peace. To inspire students to better themselves and help horses live happier, healthier lives. She does this through in person coaching, clinics, and virtual classes and community.

Michelle was personally invited by Karen Rohlf to become a Licensed Dressage Naturally Instructor.
