Tiffany Stauffer

Tiffany Stauffer, owner of Grace & Grit  Horsemanship, grew up on a small hobby farm in rural Wisconsin where her lifelong love affair with horses began. Her drive to compete and be successful sparked a desire to increase her knowledge and understanding with horses. In her journey to learn as much as she could, Tiffany competed in many disciplines including reining, rodeo, jumping, AQHA all-around, western dressage, versatility ranch horse, mounted shooting and more. Earning 4 World Championship titles, many Top Ten World titles and countless highpoints at local and regional levels in a variety of disciplines and organizations, Tiffany still chose to dive deeper into horsemanship. Alongside the traditional world of showing, Tiffany has found her passion teaching liberty, trick training and bridleless riding where she has become an avid student of the horse. She has spent time learning from many of the top performers and liberty horse trainers in the nation that have helped to develop and inspire her own style and technique with horses. The connection, harmony, and trust developed to achieve a high level of training with minimal aids at liberty is unparalleled. Tiffany now spends most of her time teaching liberty and trick training clinics to help others connect and communicate with their own horses more effectively and efficiently, as well as colt starting and problem solving training horses at her home in Wilson, WI.
