Melissa Hunsberger, Assistant Trainer
As a Level 3 ICP Instructor, Melissa works with horses and riders at every level. Melissa has the same positive and patient approach with her students, believing that first and foremost, you must enjoy the process of growth and learning. Melissa gained her knowledge by riding with a long and prestigious list of instructors, and she still avails herself of the constructive help of fellow professionals. Being a previous member of the Developing Riders Program, Melissa looks to gain that level of involvement again as she works to build and develop her group of young talented horses.
