Caitlin grew up in a very involved horse racing family. She started competing in youth rodeo at just age 5. Caitlin was also very active in 4H, qualifying for states in different events from gaming, to western pleasure, English riding, and, of course, showmanship from age 8 to 18. Now, Caitlin is still active in 4H, helping to lead Dauphin county's riding club. Caitlin started riding western pleasure at age 10, and English at age 13. She was the 2004 PA Paint Association High Point Youth Rider competing on the circuit. Caitlin's wealth of horsemanship and show experience has led her to be named High Point Trainer of the Year by Susquehanna Valley Horse Show Association for three years in a row!
"My favorite part of my job is when I see one of my students nail a maneuver that they've struggled with for so long and finally get it, or when they accomplish a goal they've wanted for so long. Those moments are my favorite"
