My name is Tere Carr.
I have spent my entire life riding horses, learning about horses, and sharing what I have learned with my students.
I have been working with horses professionally since 1989.
I am a 1992 graduate from Meredith Manor International Equestrian Center.
After graduation I went on to be a working student with Phyllis Dawson at Wind Chase Farm in Round Hill, Virginia.
After I returned to Albuquerque I galloped race horses, started young horses under saddle and managed a boarding facility.
I started a lesson program in 1994. I taught dressage and jumping on my lesson horses and to people who owned their horses. I helped my students have better relationships with their horses. Some went to dressage shows, jumping shows and horse trials. Other pleasure rode.
During that time I continued my education by attending many clinics and training programs;
- I attended the Captain Mark Phillips Instructor clinic at Goose Downs Farm
- I have over 40 hours of time scribing at recognized dressage shows.
- I have audited the USDF instructor certification classes and the "l" judge classes.
- I attended the USDF annual convention and attended lectures and workshops.
- I have judged small dressage schooling shows.
- I have taken dressage lessons with Katy Lindberg
- I have competed in various horse trials, dressage shows and jumping shows.
- I worked for six years for an equine veterinarian. Dr. Tony Pickard.
In 2012 I earned my masters degree in social work and retired from training and teaching. I am still taking a small number of boarders in my stable. I am currently working toward starting an equine assisted therapy business.
