In 1959, a then 25-year-old Gwen Phillips Nix could be found juggling the duties of feeding, cleaning, and grooming the horses at the riding school by herself, all while teaching proper horsemanship skills to 150 students each week. Today, at the Goslin-Nix Training Center, Gwen has employed the talents of daughter Jennifer and Jennifer’s husband Fred to help her care for the horses. As a team, they have coached many students who went on to become national champions, reserve national champions, and regional champions. Students often attribute their highly decorated careers to the center's core philosophy, which is designed to instill confidence, communication with the horse, and patience when teaching horses how to tie their shoelaces.
