Moon Rising Farm owner and trainer, Rebecca Roach, has a degree in Equine Science from Lake Erie College and many years of dressage and combined training experience.   She has extensive show experience of her own starting as a child with driving ponies and then going on to compete western and over fences.  She took her first dressage lesson at the age of 14 on her western pleasure horse and was hooked, and it has been a passion ever since.  She has coached  her students to regional and national titles but enjoys teaching all levels of riders and horses including gaited horses.   Rebecca is able to match the rider with the right horse and coach them in a successful partnership.  She uses natural horsemanship techniques  and her own unique approach based on classical principles to help riders and their horses reach their full potential and deepen their equine parternship.
