Lurena's training philosophy is much like her mentor and trainer of many years Charles de Kunffy, i.e., the virtues of horsemanship are the virtues of a life correctly lived with "courage, empathy, compassion and understanding". These virtues are an integral part of the many training opportunities Lurena provides. Read More about the training services provided.
