first came to us as a working student at Windchase
back in 2000. To gain experience, she competed
on Snowy River, my former International horse.
She stayed on to become a trainer and instructor at
Windchase, and is now a very important part of our
well as training and teaching, she helps to oversee the daily
operations of the farm. Melissa is a talented rider, and competes many of the Windchase
horses. She is a Level III
Instructor in the United States Eventing Association's Instructor Certification Program.
Melissa has competed
successfully at the Advanced level on Expedience and
Just Fun Stuff, both horses she brought up through
the levels herself. In 2007, she rode Just Fun
Stuff at the Rolex Kentucky
CCI****, completing with a clear cross-country jumping round. Here
are some photos of Melissa in competition.
