Cornell Graduate. My outgoing, determined and responsible personality in combination with my experience training clients, horses and extensive knowledge of the horse industry (horse show entries, lease/sale agreements, veterinary care) makes me an exceptionally qualified candidate who will be an invaluable asset to any and all barn operations.
Giving lessons to clients and schooling hunter/jumper/equitation horses
This past summer I worked in at Stony Hill Stables in East Hampton, NY. My clients ranged from young children just starting to jump, to adults getting back into riding, to advanced teenagers preparing for horseshows along the East Coast. The summer before last, I worked in Walnut Creek, California at Bright Future Farm training many young horses and preparing them for competitions. Additionally, I instructed and brought clients at this barn to compete in Equitation and Jumper disciplines. My other past work experience with horses includes an intensive breeding-training program in Germany with renowned horse breeder Christian Schact. I have worked in Ocala, Florida with Jeanie Clarke Show Stables, organizing shows, lessons and schooling her horses.
One specialty of mine is being very perceptive to clients' needs and adapting my training style to meet their riding ability and comfort level. I am able to find the balance between pushing each rider/horse combination to reach new levels in their riding careers while implementing a safe and appropriate training method.
I have an extensive background with training and riding horses at the top level as I have been competing around the East Coast and Wellington, FL for many years. I have ridden with Peter Leone, Frank Madden and currently with Susan Lowe in Ithaca, NY near my university, Cornell. I have been very successful in Big Equitation, Junior Hunters and Jumper classes during my junior riding career in top rated shows.
Competed at HITS, WEF in Wellington, FL, Lake Placid, Vermont Summer Festival, Hampton Classic, Old Salem, New England Medal Finals. Top Ribbons and Circuit Champion at WEF.
