       Phyllis competed at the highest levels of Three-day Eventing for over thirty years.  She had success on many different horses, most all of whom she trained herself.  In 1988 Phyllis represented the United States in the Olympic Games in Seoul, Korea, riding Albany II, finishing tenth overall, the best of the Americans Eventers.  She also rode for the United States Equestrian Team in 1997, successfully competing Snowy River in the Open European Championships at Burghley, England.  Learn more about Phyllis's competitive career and the horses she rode on the Eventing with Phyllis and the Competition Horses pages.

"Windchase is located in a beautiful little valley beside the Blue Ridge, known locally as 'Between the Hills.'  There is something special about this particular spot on the earth, something peaceful, almost magical.  Horses are happy at Windchase, and people are too.  There is not a day that goes by that I don't ride around the farm and think how lucky I am to be here.  I invite you to come out and join us, and experience a bit of the Windchase Magic."
