2017 closed out the year with historically low inventory and record-breaking price gains. A strong local economy and brisk population growth has helped fuel a steep discrepancy between supply and demand. As long as this imbalance remains, 2018 is on track to remain a very strong seller’s market.

Eastside Equestrian Life Business of the Month for January, 2018

Hillcrest Stables, Woodinville, WA
“Building Confidence and Leadership in a Family Environment”

It’s not terribly difficult to find a trainer out there that has a philosophy. You train with him or her and it’s their way or the highway. If you do it their way, hopefully you’ll be in the ribbons. Their goals for you become your goals for you. Finding a trainer who is focused on your process vs. your product can be a bit more challenging. For those wanting an experience with their horse that transcends blue ribbons and focuses on the journey (and OK maybe a few blue ribbons to boot) then Heidi Snider Kauffman at Hillcrest Stables in Woodinville, WA just might be the right fit. Heidi believes in meeting the student where they are and coaching mindset, physical fitness and mental strength, along with the belief that 90% of good riding is in your head. If you want to ride at the local level or go all the way to the national level and beyond, Heidi has the tools to coach the whole person and the whole horse, together as a team.

Hillcrest is a premier Hunter Jumper facility and it is just as the name implies: an equestrian center perched at the crest of Hollywood Hill in Woodinville, WA. With it’s beautiful white fencing, gorgeous turn out, indoor and outdoor arenas and 30 stalls, it’s home to a variety of lovely horses and their equally lovely owners. Heidi is the owner and trainer at Hillcrest and one of the things that makes her most proud is the fact that so many of her students, after they’ve grown and gone off to school, return to Hillcrest to continue their training. This speaks to Heidi’s wholistic approach to training and the fact that she has created a warm and inviting atmosphere that fosters relationship building and good health for horse and rider.

If you are looking to start your training journey, switch up your training, or just want to meet Heidi and learn more about her coaching style, call or email Heidi for a tour of Hillcrest today and tell her Kiama sent you! www.hillcresttraining.net
