Lee Smith lives on a cattle ranch near Estancia, New Mexico. She and her husband, Mark, have a cow-calf operation and raise quality Quarter Horses at their Harmony Hills Ranch.
For more than 40 years, Lee has traveled the world sharing what she believes to be the “Essential Elements of Horsemanship” with people who wish to learn about quality horsemanship and stockmanship. She has conducted hundreds of clinics and demonstrations, as well as teaching ranch horse classes at the Diamond S.
Lee considers herself a student of the horse, and says she’s lucky to have shared her experience with thousands of horse enthusiasts from around the globe.
A gifted and eloquent teacher, Lee has extraordinary insight into both horses and people. She shares what she sees as if speaking for the horse, and provides her students with the opportunity to observe the communication exchange between horse and human — teaching people how to learn from the horse.
Lee leads people on a pathway of discovery to the essential elements of horsemanship. She helps them unlock their potential to understand the horse’s mind, body and spirit; and then shows them how to appreciate and build upon the incredible moments of harmony that are possible. Lee believes that through life's experiences (horse related or not), the answers lie within us.
