WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT?
Simple. We're a team! PPH USA is comprised of like-minded riders who genuinely want their teammates to succeed and enjoy the learning journey of dressage. Each member has the unwavering support of their coach, Mel, and teammates at every turn. There is no better feeling walking out of the show arena to a group of your riding buddies waiting to give you a high-five or a hug no matter the outcome of your ride.
WHAT DO THEY SAY ABOUT US?
Mel is amazing. She is generous, kind, uncomplicated and candid. We all know dressage is hard, but Mel has a knack for knowing what is need to get the desired result. She has a way of breaking down a movement, feeling or exercise into small but meaningful actions. And it works - every time! In a short time, Mel has helped me forge a partnership with a new horse that will always standout as an experience of a lifetime. Thank you, Mel, for everything!
I began riding with Mel this past Spring 2019, and I am thrilled with how much I am learning! Mel's lessons are positive and easy to follow from young horses to FEI. I am impressed with both her horsemanship and professionalism. I highly recommend her!
Mel comes up for clinics and our students learn so much from her. Her private lessons are very informative and she prioritizes what needs to be worked on and leaves each student with concepts to work on until the next clinic.
