Holly began riding at the age of five. From leadline, she moved to 4-H clubs and then to the United States Pony Club. She earned her C-3 with the Blue Ridge Hunt Pony Club. She continued her involvement with the Pony Club by instructing members while in college. Once out of college, Holly’s dressage career began.
She worked as Linda Oliver’s assistant , and has ridden with top Dressage trainers and judges such as Linda Zang, Axel Steiner, Lisa Wilcox, Jim Kofford, Jeanne McDonald, Nicole Uphoff, Uve Steiner, Albrecht Hiedemann, and Linda Konigsburg. Holly believes that each trainer has something different and special to offer, and thrives on molding her techniques and philosophies by merging all theories.
Holly’s training has been focused on Linda Zang’s coaching since 2015, hosting monthly clinics at her Kingland Farm. Together they focus on rider position, accuracy, and harmony between horse and rider.
“Each horse has a different, individual personality and must be trained according. I am not a trainer that has one technique that must be applied to all horses. While basic dressage training must be mastered, not all horses will achieve this goal the same way. It is my job to create new and different exercises to encourage and ‘aid’ the horse in its training. I feel so fortunate to be able to fulfill this dream that began as a child.”
