Julie Albert has been working with horses longer than many of her students have been alive. Her passion for dressage in particular stretches back 35 years, and she's been teaching the sport for the last 25. Though dressage is Julie's specialty, she also teaches riders the disciplines of hunter/jumper, western, english, and western pleasure barrels. During all lessons, her years of experience are evident as she teaches students to manipulate the horses' movements by using their bodies rather than promising to become their racing agents. Beyond lessons, Julie hosts casual trail rides and pony parties at her three-acre farm, events that are centered around safe, well-behaved horses that Julie trained herself.
Husband-and-wife team Craig and Jill Tatum founded United Cheer Arlington with one goal: to create a family-friendly environment for their staff members and clients. Kids comfortably practice tumbling and cheerleading with a focus on teamwork and self-motivation.
United Cheer's coaches train aspiring cheerleaders aged? 3 and older, teaching skills from basic forward rolls to more advanced back handsprings and standing tumbling. Along the way, they follow a "perfection before progression" approach, ensuring safety by requiring students to perfect basics before moving on to higher-level moves.
