About Us

AnneMarie Murdock MA, LMFTA

Instructor/trainer, AnneMarie Murdock has  been teaching and training sport horses and riders since 1980.    She  has competed through fourth level, and has schooled horses through the  Gran Prix movements.  She is passionate about systematic training of  horses that strengthens and supples the horse for progressively more  difficult requests by the rider,  so that he remains healthy, sound, and  happy in his work. "I believe that it is my responsibility to  develop  horses that are a pleasure to work with, and riders who understand the  theory underlying what we do.   Successful human-horse partnerships are  my goal."  In her earlier riding career, AnneMarie competed in  hunter/jumpers and eventing.  She taught pony club for over ten years  with many students who won national recognition and some who became  professionals in their own right.  AnneMarie is available for dressage  and jumping lessons, clinics, training,  and for help selling and buying  sport horses. 

In 2016  AnneMarie  finished her masters degree in counseling and psychology at St Martins University.  Since then she has earned her LMFTA license, and opened a private practice office in Yelm, very near Serenity Farm.  "I am so lucky to be able to work both as a counselor and a horse professional each day.  The horses make me a better counselor, and the counseling makes me a better teacher and trainer."

I'd love to meet you!
