Christina Gelona-Hendricks
Christina Gelona- Hendricks has been teaching riding lessons and training horses for 23
years. With a passion for teaching, Christina has a unique ability to identify an individual's
riding strengths and develop new strengths to produce accomplished riders. She  will work
with each student at their own developing pace. Christina will quickly assess each  student's
comfort level and match the riders with appropriate level horses.

" I have always enjoyed teaching riders with various goal levels and abilities, as long as they have a love
of horses and want to learn. I see myself always being a riding instructor, as long as I can walk out to an
arena. Not many people can say they have a job they love, but I can!"

Currently Christina has students showing in Hunter/Jumper shows, breed shows, 4-H
shows and open shows.

Her areas of instruction include:
Equitation Over Fences
Hunter Under Saddle
Hunt Seat Equitation
Working Hunter
Western Pleasure
Western Horsemanship
Western Riding
General Horsemanship Skills

Currently, Christina is pursuing a Juris Doctor from Oklahoma City University School of
Law. A JD Candidate for December 2014, Christina anticipates continuing coaching and
instructing at Valentine Ranch, while pursuing a legal career in a General Practice.
