Katelyn is a USDF Bronze and Silver medalist, FEI competitor, and an Emerging Dressage Athlete.  She has worked with and trained under some of the USA’s most respected trainers including Pam Goodrich and Lendon Gray as well as Europe's most respected including Johann Hinnemann and Jurgen Hoffmann. She has spent several years in Germany riding and learning the art of Dressage from a Master Trainer. She has kept the pursuit of education close to her heart and knows to be successful in this sport you must continuously seek knowledge and be a lifelong student.

Katelyn has many successes under her belt already; among several USDF Regional Championships, she was the anchor rider in 2011 for Region 8 at the North American Junior Young Rider Championships and helped her team win the bronze medal and also was fifth individual. In 2013 she returned to the North American Junior Young Rider Championships and the Festival of Champions. Katelyn ended that year as one of the top 12 Young Riders in the country with a horse she brought to Prix Saint George herself under the tutelage of Pam Goodrich and Lendon Grey. 

In Germany, Katelyn was the second rider for a successful international Grand Prix Rider and mentored under a Master Trainer. She rode everything from stallions to Grand Prix horses to youngsters just getting their start in Dressage. She gained valuable experience by training sales projects and working with misbehaving horses. The experience she gained in Europe riding high quality horses and through learning Germany’s training system gives Katelyn an advantage and a unique approach in training her clients and horses in the USA.

Katelyn is currently at Black Star Sport Horses as one of three FEI trainers on the team. You can see her at regional shows riding Black Star’s young horses, sales horses and their breeding stallion, American Xpress.
