Tiare Watts, Founder and Creative Director
Tiare grew up on the North Shore of Oahu. She rode her first horse before she could walk. She has been an active member of 4-H, UVA (Vaulting), AQHA, Combined Traing, HHSA and USPC (United States Pony Club) in her youth and continues to be active as a Leader and Instructor/Examiner with USPC.
Tiare started training and retraining horses in 1993 at the age of 14. After graduating University of Hawaii with a BS in Animal Science as a pre-vet student, she went on to pursue her dream to Teach and Train both Horse and Rider. Tiare continued her education to become certified in 'Natural Horsemanship' and started Aloha Horsemanship.
Tiare has competed and now teaches all disciplines including; Dressage, Hunters and Eventing, Western, Reining and Colt/Filly Starting, to name a few. Her style is based on a well respected classical dressage foundation fused with Natural horsemanship. Tiare's instruction inspires and provides a unique environment that allows both horse and rider to have fun, learn and enjoy their time in and under saddle. Tiare's 2 favorite quotes are... ' There are only 2 emotions one should have in the saddle ... patience and a sense of humor' John Lyons 'The outside of a horse is good for the inside of a man' Sir Winston Churchill
