Welcome to your USA Working Equitation Journey! Michelle Lackey’s diverse 40+ years of horsemanship has allowed her to learn from and work with a multitude of breeds, levels, and disciplines of horses. Her extensive Natural Horsemanship background brings an understanding of equine psychology and communication that navigates the obstacles in the Ease of Handling Phase.

Michelle Lackey’s Dressage background is quite unique. She is a certified Balance International Riding Clinician in 3 dimensional points of balance and biomechanics, and has also delved into deeper studies of feels and awareness with Terry Wright, formally with Robert Hall (Olympic Coach) and the Fulmer International School of Equitation. Michelle Lackey is currently on the USAWE Professional Development Committee.

These attributes will elevate your every WE Phase for confidence, precision, and finesse, for riders and horses of all levels, skills, and disciplines. Sparkle and Shine, my friends!
