Christian always loved horses and from a very early age she found a way to ride. Her frequent childhood trips to the Fort Wayne Zoo to ride ponies quickly graduated to routine formal riding lessons. As a young teen her equestrian enthusiasm continued and her parents made the dream of owning a horse a reality.  Now a horse owner, Christian’s lessons took on an even greater meaning.  She enrolled in Pony Club and earned her C1 certification before graduating from high school.

After graduation Christian moved to southern Indiana to operate and manage a saddle barn at Whitewater Memorial State Park. Overseeing trail rides and teaching beginner lessons was fulfilling but working with the horses, improving the training and education of the mount, became her forte. Her eclectic interests lead to a well-rounded participation in a variety of equestrian activities.   With a base in the English disciplines she branched out into cowboy challenges, ranch work and team roping. Anything that could possibly be done with horses Christian was game to do.

 In 2014, after eight years in the trail riding business, Christian returned home to Kokomo, IN and instituted a successful lesson program of her own. She was also hired to train both the horses and officers of the Kokomo Police Department mounted unit.

During this time Christian began competing her personal horse, Dodger, in eventing. She enjoyed this immensely and was able to move up the levels to Novice, consistently placing well and qualifying for 2018 regionals. It was at this juncture Christian realized that good dressage skills would be very beneficial and necessary to achieve growth and advance towards her evolving career goals. She thus began a serious dressage lesson schedule with Kaiser Dressage early in 2017.  Over the next couple of years Christian increasingly participated at FHF, volunteering whenever she could and soon became a part time intern. 

Christian has since trained and competed both FHF and client horses. She has gained valuable arena experience and earned good scores. This year she earned her USDF silver medal on the Kaiserbred, FHF Cruisewood.

Christian’s “Can do” attitude and hardworking personality coupled with her innate talents are sure to foster continued achievement of her goals and dreams.  We are delighted to have Christian aboard. She is a vital member of our training team.
