Karen began riding and competing as a child in western New York, starting out in the hunter/jumper world and transitioning to dressage and eventing shortly after moving to the Southeast in the late seventies. Over the years, she has owned, trained, and competed 30+ horses in eventing, not one of them having any previous eventing experience.
She knew she had a special horse with Grant. Although Grant had never competed and was purchased mainly for the sole purpose to be a companion to Karen’s other horse on her farm, she could see his potential. In her own words “He has been the single most trainable, talented, willing, and personable horse I have ever owned in my 35+ years as a horsewoman.”
After treatment with Abprazole Plus Grant & Karen were ready to compete.Well the results did not surprise Karen. Grant qualified for the American Eventing Championships as a Novice Horse and finished double clear and eighth in a large field. Two months later, he made his Training Level eventing debut, winning that event. As you know, eventing is one of the most physically and mentally demanding horse sports.
Karen is a fierce competitor and has lead a team of four to the Chronicle of the Horse 2013 USEA Training Adult Riders Eastern US win and many more competition wins within the USEA program.
Karen works as a freelance writer for various equestrian magazines and has been published in Practical Horseman, Dressage Today, Dressage & CT,HorsePlay, Equine Athlete, Horse Illustrated, AQHA Journal, Southeast Equine Monthly, and has several articles in syndication with Green Grass Syndicated Features. She has written a monthly newspaper column and is a guest blogger for Abler Equine Pharmaceuticals.
Her latest edition to http://blog.abler.com/# is a seven part series on “Intro into Eventing”
