    If you are interested in horseback riding and natural horsemanship I would be happy to teach. Having grown up and further worked on big cattle ranches I have lots of horse handling and riding experience.

    If you need to improve your English we can help there.

    I have skills I would like to teach you from cooking, preserving foods, making kombucha, kefir and cheese.
