Recent Updates
  • My health is simply too bad. I am not able to do any work with horses. I will continue to publish articles as I am able.
  • October 2013: Video! Inspecting an English saddle for a broken tree.

  • I've been extremely unwell for several years, with all kinds of crazy diagnoses. We seem to have it pinpointed now, but it looks like I may never be able to hold up my arms the way I need to for saddle fitting.

  • Template Instructions: here and here.

Welcome to Lorien Stable.

Galadriel was named for the queen of the elves of the Lorien Forest in Tolkien's trilogy, The Lord of the Rings. We are, therefore, "Lorien Stable." We have articles on safety, riding, training and horse ownership; saddle fitting, and massage therapy for horses; and a discussion forum.

Galadriel offers saddle fitting, equine sports massage, riding instruction, and horse training. Consulting is available for a number of different issues (performance horse, problem horse, horse ownership) which may include any or all of the listed services. Online or long distance consulting (via answered questions or video evaluation) is also available; click "contact me" in the sidebar to email for more information. Galadriel is happy to speak to horse clubs and organizations, or for clinics and seminars.

Galadriel has extensive and varied experience with horses. She apprenticed under several eventing (combined training) trainer/instructors in Florida and Georgia. During this time she completed her degree in Physics at Georgia Tech. Since then she has managed a small boarding stable, trained her own and clients' horses, and taught riding lessons. Galadriel uses a fair amount of the varied "natural horsemanship" techniques in her handling and training; she calls it "common sense" and "listening to the horse." Galadriel has also acquired certification in Stable Management, Recreational Riding Instruction, Saddle Fitting and Reflocking, and Equine Sports Massage Therapy.

Galadriel has worked with Off-Track Thoroughbreds, young untrained horses, older green horses, lesson/camp horses, and stallions. Her students have been novices, novice horse owners, experienced riders; children and adults. Galadriel particularly enjoys working with off-track Thoroughbreds and novices (but preferably not at the same time).
