A holistic approach to training from the start to FEI Level competition.

The successful development of horses comes from the understanding of the horse as a whole.  At LMF Dressage we know that developing the mind and a healthy nervous system is as important as a horse's athletic development.  As a rider who has worked her way up the levels of dressage and earned every ounce of her education as a working student, groom, assistant trainer, manager, etc. Laine has a firm understanding that training can only be as good as the horse is understood, and their natural needs are met.  Time and time again this proves itself in that our training horses learn, grow in their character, and perform as happy athletes.

Dee Laine, Novato, CA

It is my pleasure to write this testimonial for Laine Muir-French. Laine has been my trainer and teacher for the last eleven years.

I have found her expertise as a trainer/teacher and horse care to be exemplary. She is a very kind, thoughtful and classical trainer. She strives to make it easy for the horse to learn and is able to problem solve as issues arise. She seeks to continue her own learning by reading and riding/participating in clinics with FEI trainers, judges and International riders.

As a teacher, she is very positive and her lessons are supportive but give just enough challenge. Her knowledge of horse and rider biometrics facilitate her her ability to help you become a more effective rider. Her understanding of how people learn allows her to give lessons that are  easy to understand and build on past learning.

I highly recommend Laine as either a trainer for your horse or as a teacher for the rider.

I can tell by watching Oskar’s eye, back and tail that Laine is able to communicate completely through her body, mind and spirit. She holds a deep understanding of the classical system, without compromise, and horses love her for it. She is able to blend science and art together, creating a healthy and strong partnership with the horse. Oskar’s correct muscling, fitness, health and joy in his work are a testament to Laine’s effectiveness.
