Catherine Campbell Owner of Cedar Creek Saddle Club
I began in the horse industry from the ground up. I rode my first horse at age 4 and took off from there. Obsession is an appropriate word. From horse camp and lessons to being a barn rat to proper abused working student, on to instructor of kids and then adults, trail lead and trainer, show coach, Camp director, office manager, Barn Manager, Instructor for University of Texas, Pro Rider, decorated pro rider, facility owner.... and here we are. What is important for you to know about my program? I have been a USDF L Grad demo rider and auditor.
I have two completions of the WDAA TTT (Train the Trainers) Program. I am a USEF Western Dressage Apprentice Judge. For those of you interested in the people who I've Ridden with or Audited: Lilo Fore, Charles DeKunffy, Fran Kher, Beth Barrit, Jill Hardt, Robert Dover, Steffan Peters, Christian Bachinger, Brian MacMahon, Cliff Swanson, Frances Carbonnel, Clinton Anderson, Tom Curtain, Buck Brannaman, Cal Middleton, Martin Arnold, Grace Harris, Bobbie Paulk and many more. My program has been developed over the past 22 years, 20 of which I have been teaching and training. My first and foremost concern is the well being of your horse and you. We use the following services for ourselves and our horses to keep us all comfortable and happy: Smith Healing Method, Hoof 'N Paw Chiro, Blue Ribbon Equine Massage, JLC Veterinary Service, OSS Western Dressage saddles, EquiFUSE Grooming Products, Solutions not supplements with Stride Animal Health, Although we will take on horses to show or sell it is on a case by case basis. I see myself as a guide for your journey with your horse. If your goal is to ride your horse you MUST be apart of the process to get there. There will be times in training where I will say right now you're riding a schooling horse. My gift is to help a rider and horse communicate and help each other become champions.
Lizette Smith LMT, LDT, ESMT, Smith Healing Method
Lizette grew on a ranch in Alabama before moving to Austin. She learned true, respectful, animal first horsemanship that she displays in the care and kindness she provides every horse and human she touches. Lizette's correct posture and strong independent seat make her a huge asset to the horses in our program. Her feel in the saddle and rehab abilities on the ground with the horses paired with her degree in neuroscience form the University of Texas and her numerous years of study and applied education in not only horses but humans, and certification in modalities for the relief of pain she is a true blessing to have at Texas Western Dressage.
