Prior to opening Robinson Equestrian LLC, Kelsey was a working student under Pam Tanner (natural horsemanship/western dressage), trained under various trainers including Megghan Watts (hunter/jumper/equitation), competed on the rated circuit in both hunters and jumpers, and was the head trainer at Day Star Farm (Connemara breeding) in Leesburg, VA. In addition to her experience with horses, Kelsey is a mother of two and a graduate of Shippensburg University with a degree in Biology and a certification to teach Secondary Education. Drawing from her classroom experience, Kelsey breaks her training down into clear, simple steps in order for both horse and rider to better understand the task at hand. Kelsey also has a great interest in rider fitness and has published research on rider heart rate. Kelsey continues to further her education by being well read as well as auditing and participating in clinics with trainers such Susan Moody (dressage), George Morris (Hunter/Jumper) and Candace King (Jumper). Kelsey also works as a Judge for local Hunter/Jumper shows and IMTCA.
Kelsey specializes in training horses and riders for the hunter/jumper ring as well as pleasure and trail riding in western tack. Kelsey's training focuses on relationship building between horse and rider, as well as teaching her students to be smart and safe when they are around horses. Working from the ground up, her students and horses build confidence that will carry them in any direction they wish to go.
Prior to accepting the assistant trainer position at Robinson Equestrian Mady had been a long time boarder, part-time worker, and friend to Robinson Equestrian. During her riding career Mady has successfully trained or held working student positions under numerous trainers in the hunter, jumper, and equitation world. These trainers include Joyce McDonald, Wendy Dutterer, and most recently a clinic with Candice King. Mady's resume also includes a very successful show career as a junior rider at the local level. In addition to Mady's experience in the saddle she worked as a groom at Pembrooke Point, a local "A" rated show barn.
Horses have always been Mady's passion and from a young age she knew she wanted a career in the horse industry. Her experience as a catch rider has helped shape her teaching methods. Mady positively challenges her students to be prepared for any situation in the saddle as well as on the ground. She provides them the tools they need to be safe, independent, and effective riders in any discipline they wish to pursue.
Lexie has been involved with horses for the past ten years. She started her riding career at Heritage Acres where she showed Hunters and worked in the barn cleaning stalls. In May of 2019 she graduated from Wilson College with a degree in Equine Studies with a concentration in Equine Management. Lexie's first equine job after college was at Camp Hebron/Meadowview Stables in Halifax as a wrangler in the Summer of 2019. There she was able to grow her passion for teaching. She then continued on to teach as a year round instructor at the camp. Lexie is a CHA certified riding instructor in both English and Western riding and her goal is to pass on her passion for horses to all the students that pass through the barn. Her teaching style focuses on safety while creating a solid foundation that any rider can take into any discipline.
Kat has loved horses and rode since she was six years old. During her riding career she has trained under many trainers in Canada and the United States in both hunters and jumpers. Her resume boasts a successful show career as a junior rider in rated shows. She has also worked at various barns including Wilson College Equestrian Center, Heritage Acres stables, and Part One Equine.
Kat attended Wilson College and received her degree in Equine Facilitated Therapy. While in college she rode on Wilson's IHSA, eventing, and dressage team, and spent a semester teaching people with physical and intellectual disabilities how to ride.
Kat's experience with horses has helped her learn many different techniques. She focuses on building a relationship between horse and rider to help them grow. She believes that riding should be relaxing and fun, while still learning the necessities needed to progress as a rider.
