Robin has a talent for eliciting marked improvement in every horse and driver in just one lesson. Robin shares a wealth of knowledge about horses, not just driving, but also feeding, horse management, and horse behavior. With each student, she asks the driver what their goals are for the lesson, and then tailors her teaching to these goals. She also gave helpful hints on turnout for shows. She is an expert on harnesses and harness fit.
At the Saturday evening dinner, Robin shared information with Nashoba members about sleigh driving, which she uses for conditioning in the winter.
