"I have been trail riding for over 30 years and never had a problem crossing water....until my 5YO mare Dancer. I knew I needed help and contacted Lindsey Patterson. Lindsey worked with Dancer using ground bridle work, crossing tarps and arena work all the time also working with me. When we went on our first water crossing ride there were three creek crossing opportunities. Dancer crossed without hesitation like she never had an issue. I was amazed. We went to a larger crossing - the Wiggins Fork, again Dancer crossed the river a couple of times with no anxiety or stress. I highly recommend Lindsey Patterson/Beyond the Bit and look forward to working with her again in Spring 2022!"
