About Us

Liana White

My passion and dedication for horses is rooted in my childhood in Germany. I had the opportunity to ride with great mentors like Roswitha Holzhauer to further advance my dressage and jumping skills. My life moved to the United States and again I had the privilege to learn from reining horse trainer legend Francois Gauthier in North Carolina and also obtained my Bachelor Degree in Therapeutic Horsemanship. I specialized in developing young horses into reining horses, as well as teaching people with disabilities and youth at risk the fundamentals of horsemanship.  In Texas I furthered my skills in training reining horses, coached Para Reining Riders at the NRHA Futurity and worked for Manion Ranch (Smooth as a Cat) under Cutting Futurity winner Phil Hanson.  Returning back to education, I gained my teaching certificate which allows me to teach in the State of Texas. I taught in different behavioral units as well as for the Texas Juvenile Justice Department.
