Louise’s professional equestrian career has included over 40 years of training, instructing and successfully competing in almost every equine activity and discipline, including many years as a licensed race trainer.
In addition, Louise began studying yoga in 1971 and became a nationally certified instructor in 1999. Taking her two life passions of whole-health and horses, she has brought them together into the fully integrated offerings of Classeq Performance.
Classeq Performance was originally known as ESP*Equine Sports Performance, which she founded in 1994. However, as client needs expanded Louise felt compelled to change the name and expand her program portfolio.
She began by designing and implementing equine assisted programs such as, LEAD ~ Leadership thru Equine Assisted Development, and EASY ~ Equine Assisted Somatic Yoga, for various organizations, as she currently works toward her Masters degree in Equine Assisted Mental Health.
By diving into the daunting world of Equine Assisted Psychotherapy (EAP) research, she hopes to help define a new source of merit for the horse in a world that continues to move rapidly away from the grounding and balancing resources of nature.
