Nicole Walther, Instructor
Nicole Walther began riding in Rhineland, Germany at the age of 7. She was trained in Horsemanship and Dressage based upon the Training Pyramid and the German discipline of riding. As her skills developed, Nicole began schooling horses and instructing students at several private barns as well as the world famous Reit-und-Fahrverein Weisenheim a. Sand, home of Olympian Hugo Simon. In 1998 Nicole relocated to the United States where she created and managed the riding program at Diamond W Stables in Iowa. At this stable Nicole was able to exchange skills to obtain her first horse, a beautiful Hanoverian-Percheron stallion named Romeo. Working with stable owner Susan Wallen and Olympian Gwen Stockebrand, Nicole refined her skills resulting in a proper canter pirouette. The program was expanded successfully with plans to be integrated into the University of Iowa's Equestrian Program. When the tragic events of September 11 took place, Nicole's husband joined the U. S. Air Force and they relocated to Tucson, Arizona where Nicole was the Barn manager at Rancho Valle Milagro before moving to Los Angeles. Nicole takes great pride in teaching Enterprise Farms' students of all levels complete Horsemanship with a focus on a well balanced seat and partnership with the horse.
