Tina Derby is a longtime horse owner, rider, and breeder, having bred and owned several national-level winning horses. She is also a marketing consultant, specializing in equine industry businesses. It is Tina who first saw the need for some basic online training about horses, and so, the Horses 101 series of courses was born.
David has a lifelong passion for sharing information about horses with everyone from those just beginning to show an interest in horses to the riders he prepares for National level competitions. He likes to think he's the Sienfeld of horsetrainers. Just the fact that he actually thinks he's funny is hilarious in it self. We think he's more a combination of Sheldon Cooper and Mr. Rodgers with a bit of Karl Rove thrown in for good measure. Although he is serious about his pursuit of quality horsemanship based on the way the horse see the world he thinks learning should be fun. Some of his test questions and potential answers will prove that. David has long recognized that a key to a vibrant equestrian community is helping newcomers feel comfortable around horse people and activities.
