Who Am I?

My name is Kristina Ellis. I am a professional horseback riding instructor,BLM (TIP) Mustang Trainer, and Group Fitness Instructor.

I began riding western pleasure at age 5, and I added reining, roping, team penning, trail, and hunter hack to my repertoire by age 16!

I was introduced to Dressage and once I recognized how it helped strengthen my relationship with my horse I was hooked! 

In my 20's I managed my own boarding and training facility which specialized in rehabilitation and lay up care.

 I have since worked for many different barns in SE WI and NE IL (Dressage, Pleasure, Hunter Jumper, Eventing, etc) and with my accident prone horses, I have just about seen it all!

I work with local area equine chiropractors, massage therapists, acupuncturists and homeopathic veterinarians using essential oils because I believe that there needs to be not only physical healing, but mental and spiritual healing in order to have not only ourselves but our equine partners working at our best!
