I am a fifteen year old FEI dressage rider based out of Ohio, but spend the winters training in Wellington, FL. I currently ride an 18h Oldenburg gelding named Happy Texas Moonlight. (He’s my dream horse…total gentle giant whom I refer to as “Louis” or “Lounicorn”) 2019 was our first season together and it was amazing to say the least! We were selected to our very first team for NAYC and I’m proud to say that I returned home with double gold medals in the FEI Junior division by winning both the Individual and the Freestyle classes. I also anchored my region II team to help us earn silver. To date, I’m the youngest rider in the U.S. to have ever earned double golds. My dressage journey has been so much fun, and I cannot wait to see what the future holds for me. I am very grateful for the support of my family, as well as the entire team of individuals and companies that are an integral part of our success. Kristin Stein is not only my trainer and coach, but truly part of my family. Thank you also to my wonderful sponsors: BioStar, MDC Stirrups, Prestige Italia Saddlery, Top Jock, and of course Annie’s Equestrienne Apparel.

Thank you!
