An avid Competitive Trail
rider, Dolores has completed several 100-mile rides with her Morgan
stallion, Lance. Along with her husband, she also trains and breeds
Racing Siberian Sled dogs and breeds champion Schipperke dogs.
Dolores was a Professional Show Dog Handler of many breeds for 20
years. She is now an American Kennel Club Show Dog Judge and at one
point had 65 dogs at her facility, so it would be fair to say her
interest in training goes well beyond the normal pet owner.

of the premier demo horses for our Clicker horse training series and
attends Equine Expos as an ambassador of the method.
Dolores loves making things
happen! She is a woman who has mastered her fears of not good enough
and limitation. She is best
at lifting others into the exploration of their inner spirits to
accomplish their goals and a whole lot more. Dolores’ coaching
