Dryden woman is talented trainer and wonderful friend
The Traveling Trainer, Ann-Marie Lavallee, of Dryden is a wonderful young woman who has had a tremendous impact on my life.
Getting people involved with their horses and enjoying what they do and even going beyond expectations of what they can do with their animals and themselves, has in my opinon, saved a few equines and their owners from heartache and tragedy. She is very humble in what she does but does it in such a determined, calm way you can't help but admire her for her tenacity, compassion and downright knowledge of what she's doing.
I went through a lot of instructors who would not even give me a chance to ride again because of my physical challange. A horse fell on me 30 years ago crushing my leg and since I met Ann-Marie not only have I been riding again, but have my own dream horse and actually made it into an article in the March Appaloosa Journal magazine.
My hat goes off to Ann-Marie for being able to give me the confidence and trust in myself to do far more with my life than just exist. She is not just a wonderful trainer, she is a wonderful friend!
