TRAINER

TAMARA "TAMI" HECKMAN

Tami Heckman is a USDF Bronze Medalist and is working toward her Training Level - 1st Level Instructor certification. 

 

She earned her Bronze medal in 2014 on her partner, Paris, an Oldenburg mare that she has owned since 2011. With her extensive training under both Lisa Hall and Mary Flood of Wildfire Farm, she decided to bring her skills to teaching and training. Tami specializes in lunge lessons for the adult amateur.

All lessons and training are structured around the training scale to ensure the correct progressive development of horse and rider according to classical principles.  Training may include lunging, free jumping, work over cavalletti, trail riding and hill work as it is important that horses have fun with their work and are not drilled. We do not provide school horses although do have limited ability to offer lessons on select privately owned client horses.  

 

Tamara will provide haul in instruction as well as offsite clinics. 

In addition to her instructor responsibilities she owns and manages Uphill Dressage.
