Who Is Your Instructor - Nancy Lavoie

I help dressage riders stay confident in the show ring while experiencing the joy that riding horses should bring.

In addition to being an accomplished competitor at the Grand Prix level, a Five Star Rider, and a United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medalist, I am an accomplished trainer, clinician, and life coach. I have juggled my riding with being a wife, business partner, mentor, stepmother, daughter, sister, aunt, friend, and, like you, I can go on. I have not always been successful at creating a life of balance and accolades. It is when life becomes difficult that we learn the most, and I am excited to share some of my experiences with you in hopes that this will help you live the most authentic and expressive life with (and outside of) horses possible.

I am passionate about using my lessons as an experienced horsewoman to help others achieve their horse-related goals in addition to helping people find that balance and happiness we search for while living a more fulfilling life.


USEF Gold Medalist Nancy Later Lavoie’s course is the GOLD STANDARD for learning how to take care of horses in a professional barn.

After taking groundwork lessons with Nancy’s Carousel Coaching, I wanted to learn how to better connect with my horse. I also wanted to learn why my horse was so willing to connect with me.

Nancy’s course is filled with helpful videos that explain why professional barn staff do what they do and how the horses respond to this level of care.

In addition to the foundational ideas, I learned so much from the people demonstrating the techniques. Nancy, the working students, apprentices, and barn manager all show their tips and tricks that help the horses to glow. And the horses really respond to the structure and techniques.

I loved being able to watch the videos again and feel as if I could apply what I learned immediately.

For me, the course is like a Decoder Ring for horse care! Outstanding.
