"There are really no words to describe how thankful I am to have had the chance to take lessons from Katrina.
We started Fall of 2020 training under her when she moved to idaho from Montana and in those months leading up to now the relationship between Amzi and I has grown and flourished into something I never expected! She’s given me so much hope and helped me find my confidence with horses again.
Amzi and I are a brand new team with hopes of a bright future because of you Katrina!"
"Katrina Natwick is an honest, passionate horsewoman who has developed a wonderfully light, feel for horsemanship from a natural foundation in ground skills, liberty, colt starting to an accomplished rider and successful in competitions. She has a strong commitment to numerous aspects of equine management including: the horse’s wellness, nutrition, hoof care and to help develop healthy movement. She takes into account the horse’s personality, confirmation, history, conditioning and current abilities to advance their potential to higher levels.
Katrina is kind, caring and open to listening to what is communicated while she is patient in developing a partnership that include trust, connection, confidence and understanding with the horse as well as humans. She is serious in her commitment with her own growth to become the best individual and professional she can be.
Katrina Natwick is a valuable asset to those who seek to advance their horsemanship, relationship and understanding with their horses."
"Katrina is very talented with equine emotional fitness, building confidence in both horse and rider, and has a special talent with “problem” horses. Katrina’s approach is kind, effective, and replicable. Meaning her students are able to actually apply what they learn instead of just having to have a trainer do it.
As someone who has rode through Grand Prix Dressage with a coaching and training career myself, I highly recommend Katrina to anyone who is looking to build their relationship and confidence with their horse, no matter the discipline.
Unlike many “problem horse trainers” out there, you will not have to “look the other way” when your gut tells you it’s cruel training methods. Everything Katrina does is kind, in integrity of the horse and rider, and is an enjoyable experience for all.
If you have an opportunity to work with her, I highly recommend you do! I’ve witnessed her students totally flourish with their horses (many weren’t even riding when they started with her, and in weeks were riding again!), and she has certainly helped me big time with my two high spirited and high powered warmbloods!
Katrina is the real deal and a gift and a blessing to the equestrian world."
