Street to Stable® is pleased to share the expertise of Darby Bonomi, PhD, a respected equestrian performance consultant based in San Francisco, in a regular feature column titled "Two Point." The name stems from Darby's insight as both a professional psychologist and as a life-long equestrian, which now also includes her role as a horse show mom.
Darby's personal journey is a testament to her authentic love for the equestrian way of life. She helps riders of all levels and their families reclaim the joy in their riding, leading the way to improved performance and greater health both in and out of the show ring.
"Amateurs—in whatever discipline or level—are the most passionate and devoted riders. Time spent riding provides some of the most joyful, satisfying and therapeutic moments of our lives." - Darby Bonomi
