WHY DALISAY EQUESTRIAN
Attention to detail is one of my strongest qualities; it is applied in my program in many ways. The overall health and well being of the horses is my main concern. I formulate a proper diet for each individual horse with additional supplements as needed. Every horse has a fitness and turnout schedule tailored to their needs. I pay close attention to the horses' bodies and movement to judge when they need therapeutic work such as chiropractic, massage, laser, or acupuncture. Horses in the program are on a daily stretching schedule as well. I’m a big believer in caring for horses as the top athletes they are.
One of my main focuses as a trainer is assessing each horse and rider to discover what they need to work on and address any missing pieces in their training. This creates a strong foundation to then build upon. I incorporate relaxation methods into my training to teach horses and riders to execute exercises with a calm mind and relaxed body. The more relaxed a rider and horse can be during exercises, the more properly it can be executed with grace and correct form. Another key development method in my program is confidence building for the horse and rider. We work to achieve this with every individual in a variety of ways to make sure they are confident in different situations. This is a very important part of the program; it benefits everyone in the show ring and day to day life. I feel this is an important factor in setting up young riders and horses for success throughout their lives.
WHO IS DALISAY EQUESTRIAN
Dalisay Equestrian is more than just a riding and training program. We are a family working together and supporting each other to achieve our individual goals. Everyone has different goals and is on a different path, but to succeed, we work together to support each other’s endeavors. Whether you want to compete at a higher level, make progress in lessons at home, have a stronger relationship with your horse, or watch your horse compete at the shows, the team at Dalisay is here to facilitate your dreams and support you along the way.
I work hard to keep the environment upbeat and fun. After all, this is why we have horses... because they are enjoyable. I want everyone in our barn to feel that they can be themselves and express their goals. Dalisay Equestrian is a program that helps promote self-development and provides an environment where knowledge is accessible. We achieve this by providing a variety of educational opportunities to create a well-rounded horse person with a strong foundation.
Some of our educational opportunities include:
- clinics with other instructors with a variety of backgrounds
- educational seminars (nutrition, physical therapy, farrier, veterinarian, sports psychology, equine
behavior, fire safety, etc.)
I have a constant thirst for knowledge and I feel this has led me to many good things in life. It has facilitated an ongoing process of creating a well-rounded horsewoman. I'm thankful for many people in my life that have given me knowledge through-out my journey. Horses have, and always will be, my life passion. The best thing about being with horses is the relationship they allow us to create with them. Horses teach us so much, not just about them, but who we are and how we can be better.
"DANIELLE IS AMAZING!"
My horse, Seamus, always had difficulty with his training. He is sweet and kind, but a pain in the butt when you want him to do things your way. Danielle helped me and my horse bond better, and now we're starting to run in events - I never dreamed that would happen!
