April 2015 - Balance Exercises for Horses and Riders with Robin Postman-Benson and Tara Reimer.

Sponsored by Balance Rider- www.balancerider.com


Robin Postman-Benson - Over the years Robin has been fortunate to experience many opportunities in a variety of aspects of the horse world, including being certified as a Master Clinic Instructor with Certified Horsemanship Association (CHA) in both English and Western. She first became certified as a CHA and ARICP instructor in 2001 while teaching agriculture and FFA in high schools in Vermont.   Horses have been an integral part of Robin’s life as long as she can remember.

Growing up in Vermont, Robin began riding and competing in 3-day Eventing and Combined Training Events.  Living and working in Vermont, Colorado, then Texas, Robin broadened her riding disciplines to include competitive reining, cutting, ranch horse versatility and team roping.  She has worked training horses and teaching lessons most of her life, developing her passion for teaching at an early age.  Robin spent time in Ireland with horses on breeding farms and fox hunting, adding another dimension to her equine experience.

Robin graduated from college with a Bachelor of Science degree in Biology, and a minor in French.  The years after graduation have taken Robin all over the country and the world, including work in Brazil, France and Ireland, work as a vet tech in Colorado, teaching high school in Vermont, and training horses and teaching riding in Vermont and Texas.  15 years after graduating college, Robin returned to school to complete her Master’s in Business Administration (MBA). Robin and her husband enjoy time with their young daughter, working and learning in their business, outside with their horses, dogs and cattle. Work is play when you have good people to spend your day with. You can reach her at - http://www.chainstructors.com/listing.php?d=viewInfo&id=10233
