Lindsey Scofield is a Professional Horse Trainer and founder of Three Wishes Traveling Natural Horsemanship. Lindsey is a lifelong equestrian and has been working with horses since 1994. She has been training professionally since 2002.
After receiving a degree in Horse Training and Management from Lamar Community College in Colorado, Lindsey studied and worked with owners and farms in New York, Virginia, Kansas, and Colorado, until she found her home in Texas. Lindsey proudly serves the Lone Star State by providing personal one-on-one horse training lessons, suitable for all horse breeds and levels.
Lindsey has worked with both young and mature horses, from various disciplines throughout all levels of training.

It was while teaching children that Lindsey realized her passion for Natural Horsemanship as it not only established boundaries, but it also ensured the safety of the rider.
Erin Malia began riding as a young teen and has owned horses since 1998. She began her career in the equine industry after graduating from the University of Georgia, serving as stable manager and lesson instructor at a hunter-jumper training facility. Her desire to maximize her knowledge and skills led to the valuable experience of working for an equine veterinary practice for several years, while also becoming certified as a PATH (Professional Association of Therapeutic Horsemanship, International) certified riding instructor. Erin’s career in therapeutic riding includes serving organizations in various capacities: instructor, mentor, volunteer coordinator, horse trainer, program director, and board member. The opportunity to blend her passion for horses with helping others also heightened Erin’s awareness of the many aspects of safety around horses. This awareness, along with her desire to increase attention on the relationship between horse and human, led Erin to natural horsemanship. She has seen the tremendous impact of the natural horsemanship approach on her own horses as well as on her students and their horse experiences. Natural horsemanship prioritizes an understanding of horse behavior and nature, which translates to better communication, increased motivation, optimized safety and maximum success for both horse and rider. Erin takes great joy in building the confidence and skills of her students and their horses so that they can enjoy each other for many years.
