Rodolfo Lara and Tessa Nicolet team up to teach horses and riders about the Art of a refined partnership with our horses.  Combining Rudy’s exceptional horsemanship skills and Tessa’s supportive teaching style, Art of Horsemanship encourages students to dig deep into classical, refined, soft horsemanship.

Rudy Lara combines classical riding and traditions of vaquero horsemanship to develop a versatile, talented, confident, trusting horse.  Rudy’s horsemanship is centered on benefiting the horse from the ground up using concepts of biomechanics to properly develop horses mentally, emotionally, and physically for any discipline.  Rudy focuses on putting the relationship with the horse first.  Rudy has trained and worked with Jack Brainard, Eitan Beth-Halachmy, Dennis Reis, and Buck Brannaman.  He has competed in Cowboy Dressage World Finals showcasing freestyle to music working with La Garrocha and earned 7th in 2015 and 4th in 2018 in Top Hand.
