Born and raised in the heart of horse country, Louisville, Kentucky, Lauren is a second-generation upper-level rider and trainer. Successfully reaching the CCI4* level at the age of 19 with her family's OTTB, Baba Creek, was just the beginning of an exciting journey around the world.
Lauren has worked for and ridden with some of the nation’s top riders including David O’Connor, Jimmy Wofford and Phillip Dutton. She spent twelve years studying and schooling German Classical Dressage techniques which embedded in her how to sympathetically and systematically train even the most difficult horses. Developing under world-class instructors, along with growing up in the business, Lauren has the experience, confidence, and deep-rooted know-how for communicating, coaching, and helping horses and riders reach their goals.
Lauren has also ridden and worked for American Grand Prix Show Jumping Champion Derek Braun of Split Rock Farm in Lexington, Kentucky and German Team World Champion and Individual Show Jumping Bronze medalist Sören Von Rönne in Hamburg, Germany. After being Talent Spotted onto the Under 25 Eventing Squad in 2013 and training with the US Eventing High Performance Team, Lauren relocated to Dallas to be with her husband, Adam. Lauren is excited at the opportunity to work with horses and riders of all levels from her home base in Dallas-Fort Worth.
