Lizzie now has a 3 year old son, Lando,n and a 7 month old daughter, Cooper.

Lizzie has always been a “horse girl” from her first pony at the age of 3 to traveling the globe to compete and care for horses. Horses have always been her biggest passion. Her primary focus has been three-day eventing for the past 15 years but she also has had extensive experience with hunters/jumpers , fox hunting and dressage. She has worked for and managed barns form some of the best three-day event riders in the United States and Canada, including Karen and David O’ Connor, Jan Byyny, Kyle Carter, and Phillip Dutton. Lizzie was awarded the USEA Grooms Award in 2009. She has traveled the world riding and competing through the upper levels of eventing and feels privileged to bring her knowledge back to the area where she grew up.
