I can’t speak highly enough about Danielle and her training program.  She took my teenage daughter, as a basic rider on public lesson horses, on a trajectory of leasing her first horse, becoming a USEF Member, receiving the US Equestrian Athlete Letter in the 9th and 10th grade, and doing a recognized show in just 18 months.  Additionally, Danielle helped us find the perfect Eventing horse that we now own and is part of the DEV Team. Danielle's expertise in Dressage and Eventing always offer interesting and informative lessons that challenge the rider to reach their personal goals, and beyond.    - Renee Cole

Danielle has been my trainer for almost 5 years. Danielle was my trainer first coming back into the sport after a traumatic riding accident. I rode her horse Alec and she boosted my confidence up to where I am today. 2 years ago, Danielle and I had to make a decision to get me the right partner I need for my goals in riding. That’s where horse shopping started. We found our unicorn horse, Colin. This horse is a true school horse in Danielle eyes. What I truly admire about Danielle is that she loves and cares for her client's horses just as much as if they were her own. She has also taught me one very important detail I will take forever with me, which is “Sometimes our horses need us to be stronger for them than they are for us.”  -- Katie Thom

Danielle is an absolutely amazing trainer! My daughter has been training with her for over 2 years. Within this time we have leased several horses, all with different characteristics and currently we are leasing a sensitive horse. Danielle has taught my daughter the riding skills needed to finesse herself on each horse, no matter how different they were. And currently, Danielle has taught my daughter how to truly be a partner with her sensitive horse and she has really cultivated their relationship. This has taken their riding to new heights and I’m excited to see where it leads. -Becky Berg Cece and Colin Team Colin

I rode with Danielle before she started DEV and I am still a client. She picked out and started my first horse and we could not be a more perfect match. Danielle always goes above and beyond the call of duty for her clients. On top of that she is an amazing teacher and a true horseman.
