With this move she discovered a new experience with gaited horses.
The Tennessee Walking horse being the first. Being appalled by the picture
being presented with these horses. She was determined and continue
to train theses and all gaited horse with
She has always trained and shown light shod and barefoot. Starting with good ground work basics, working to develop and bring out the natural gaits as well as the versatility of each individual.
Believing education is the way to make changes and create better understanding. Liz saw a need to help educate and eliminate some of the confusion about the different gaits. She proposed and developed a Gait and conformation standard (copyright 1993) for what was the IPWHA. Judging all breeds since 1982, Liz saw a need for a pool of honest, sound horse judges for the country to turn to. Again through IPWHA she developed and launched their sound horse judging program.
Through that first fascination with the TWH Liz was determined to learn everything possible about all the gaited breeds, share everything with those that want to learn through conducting clinics , judging, teaching her clients on the ranch, volunteering my time to the local 4-H and hoofed rescue .
Moving her business back to Minnesota in 1995, she still continues to
learn, enjoy the horses and people everyday.
