The staff  of the Montana Center for Horsemanship is small but combined, brings many years of equine education experience and nonprofit leadership to day to day operations of the organization.  MCH also relies on generous support and guidance from its dedicated board of directors, as well as volunteers and the community.

The MCH team includes Eric Hoffmann, Director of Horsemanship and Facilities and the lead instructor for the Bachelor of Science Natural Horsemanship Degree program and Janet Rose, Director of Development & Communications, the Kriegel Foundation, developing strategic relationships to advance the mission of the Center.  Together, Janet and Eric are coordinating new programs, education conferences, symposiums, and special events for the Center. 


Two additional NH Instructors, both graduates of the Natural Horsemanship Program are Melanie South and Robert (Robbie) Chesterfield.  You can learn more about these two exceptional teachers under the Instructors link. 

Through the vision of the MCH Board of Directors, staff and many equine professionals, researchers and educators worldwide, the Montana Center for Horsemanship is recognized as a leading international equine education center with a special focus on natural horsemanship as the foundation of its mission.

Today, the Montana Center for Horsemanship is engaged in a significant brick and mortar campaign to expand and grow the Center, currently developing state-of-the-art classrooms, a veterinary-research laboratory, conference and meeting space, a dining area, kitchen facilities, tack building, expanded corrals and fenced pastures for additional "horse housing" and other amenities to support its vision as a dynamic education event center.  To learn more about MCH, to support or donate, please contact Janet Rose at or 406.925.3270.
