Kim has a way of giving lessons in a positive, persitent, patience and polite manner.

Jody has been or is a member of United States Eventing Association, AreaV, NTEA, NTHJC, ACRA, THSRA and AQHA. Jody is a CHA certified instructor (4th Level English & Western). His entire life has been about rodeo, shows or building relationships with horses in general. He incorporates horsemanship skills when giving instruction about English or Western riding.

Eventing (also known as horse trials) is an equestrian event where a single horse and rider combination compete against other combinations across the three disciplines of dressage, cross-country, and show jumping. This event has its roots in a comprehensive cavalry test requiring mastery of several types of riding. The competition may be run as a one-day event (ODE), where all three events are completed in one day (dressage, followed by show jumping and then cross country) or a three-day event (3DE), which is more commonly now run over four days, with dressage on the first two days followed by cross country the next day and then show jumping in reverse order on the final day. Eventing was previously known as Combined Training, and the name persists in many smaller organizations. The term "Combined Training" is sometimes confused with the term "Combined Test" which refers to a combination of just two of the phases, most commonly dressage and show jumping.
