Join Dressage Naturally Instructor, Shelby Hume, on Saturday, November 4th, for an informative discussion about how everyone can have a happy and healthy picture of horsemanship to their abilities!
Shelby loved horses from her very first breath and started her education through 4-H while growing up in Minnesota. This gave her experience with many classes like showmanship & horsemanship, equitation and many time events and they all helped develop her into a well-rounded equestrian with a positive outlook as she easily found the benefit & fun of each class. Shelby was later introduced to reining and went on to compete in the Open and Ladies divisions. She even went through the rigorous process of becoming a NRHA judge. At this time, she was also teaching the equine program and coaching the intercollegiate team at a college in Kentucky.
Shelby was introduced to Parelli and began to dabble with the concepts of Natural Horsemanship where she had the opportunity to work with a variety of natural horsemen. This process lead her to Karen Rohlf of Dressage, Naturally who helped Shelby find her “true north” and a way to pursue her interpretation of what a “Happy Athlete” was all about. Now, Shelby and her husband, David currently resides on Excelsior Farms in Midway, Kentucky. Not only is Shelby committed to further developing herself and her horses to their fullest potential, she is also excited to share her passion & knowledge with others so they can achieve their dream with horses.
