Melissa Hammond
Riding before she could walk, Melissa started her first training project at age 11. Kicking butt in the show ring, as a team they never placed lower than Reserve at an event. Sadly, due to laminitis issues, Sassy was retired early. All though Melissa teaches both disciplines she prefers to start horses aimed toward western disciplines. She is very talented at finishing and polishing both riders and horses for the show ring. Currently, she is working with her APHA gelding Whiskey, her Paint gelding Kelso and her big Appaloosa gelding Thorn. Melissa is also kept busy with various other training projects and teaching lessons. Melissa is a great instructor and trainer.  Need help with your horse, want to start showing, Melissa is your trainer/instructor.
