Favorite discipline: Hunters
Favorite barn memory: When I walked my first horse off of the trailer and into his new home.

Favorite thing about horses: They always know exactly what we need, whether it’s a cuddle on a bad day or challenging us to be a better rider to let us know when we need to change a habit or choose better distances.

Lauren has been riding since the age pictured, with dreams of becoming an event rider for Team USA. She fell in love with dressage and often could be seen practicing tests with her less-than-enthused mare, Missy.

 

Favorite discipline: 3-Day Eventing
Dream horse: A leggy, black Dutch Warmblood (or Valegro)
Favorite barn memory: When she taught her campers how to braid a mane when she was a counselor in high school (and also when all they wanted to do was put glitter on their horses).
Favorite thing about horses: The connection between horse and rider, the moments in the saddle where the harmony between them seems effortless.
Shop favorites: Star Lady Shadow from Kask (though she fondly remembers the days of showing in a velvet helmet)

Street to stable style has always been important to her, and loves being able to bring that to the store.
Favorite discipline: Dressage
Dream horse: Valegro
Favorite riding accomplishment: Riding on the team at Bard
Favorite thing about horses: Everything goes away when I’m at the barn.
