Stacy’s passion is horses, horses and then horses and she is feeling at her happiest when, you guessed it, she's on a horse. It was always clear to her that her life would revolve around horses. She attended the University of Findlay in Ohio, one of the top colleges in the world for Equine Studies. It was there that she studied the traditional training techniques and fundamentals with some top instructors and got into reining with champion trainers. Her training philosophy is an extension of applying the techniques she picked up from these trainers and combining them with what her own horses taught her about the relationship horses can have with people.
Since her childhood Stacy has made it her mission to be the best student of horses she can be, and this has inspired her to actively pursue other disciplines such as mounted shooting, Western dressage and even classical dressage. The self-confessed big picture thinker likes to find the common connections between each discipline.
“My goal for EQUITANA will be to explain to people how I see the horse world as a giant puzzle, and how all these different pieces sit together to make this beautiful picture of horses.”
