Meet the Staff_V2

Dawn Sandiford-Stahr founded The Horsemanship School, LLC in 1999 following a number of years as lead instructor for the equine program at Redmond Parks & Recreation. The school is a culmination of her lifelong passion for education and everything equestrian. Dawn's goal is to teach correct horsemanship theory and skills to all who want to learn. When not working, she loves spending time with her family and her adopted BLM Kiger Mustang named Kiddo.


Lisa Miniken grew up riding at a summer camp in Eastern Washington. After graduating from Washington State University, she worked as an instructor for Redmond Parks & Recreation and for Little Bit Therapeutic Riding Center. Lisa obtained CHA certification in 2003 and continues to substitute teach at THS while working as a Program Manager at Microsoft. Lisa is an avid trail rider and spends most of her time at THS working with her horse DJ (also a THS school horse), helping with barn chores, and helping Dawn with training and schooling of the herd.
