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 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 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.
