Lisa grew up on her family's Wind Dancer Farm. Her first competition was at a Pony Club rally at age 4, when she rode a tiny shetland pony named David to a blue ribbon finish. Riding difficult ponies and then OTTBs, she worked her way up to representing Area 8 at the 2002 NAYRC. Following high school, she moved to Middleburg, VA to be a working student for Karen and David O'Connor. Currently running the young horse program for Wind Dancer Farm, Lisa has the reputation of being a friendly, honest horsewoman who produces lovely, well-broke horses. Lisa is a US Equestrian Team long listed rider who has been ranked 23th in the US top 50 riders. She has already produced two very successful three-star horses - Kenzo de la Roque and FIS Prince Charming. She and Kenzo earned an 8th place finish at the Jersey Fresh CCI***, and 14th place at The Fork CIC***, following top placings at the Advanced level including 3rd at Red Hills and 6th at Pine Top. At the 2011 American Eventing Championships, Kenzo finished 10th overall in the Advanced, 9th for the US. Her NZTB, F.I.S Prince Charming, won the Red Hills Advanced, was 10th at Richland Park Advanced and 13th at The Fork CIC*** (one of only a few to finish on their dressage score). He finished 5th in the Intermediate division at the 2011 AECs. Lisa has trained and competed multiple horses at international competitions, including Vinnie Barbarino, L’Cedric, Just a L’il Bit, Kenzo de la Roque and FIS Prince Charming. As a Young Rider, she represented Area VIII at the North American Young Riders Championships in 2002 and earned a Team Silver Medal at the 2005 NAYRC with Area II, riding L’Cedric. In 2007, she and Just a L'il Bit won the Morven Park CCI*, and they also won the USEA year end award at Preliminary. Her ultimate goal is to represent the US one day in international competition. Lisa is a long time student of Karen and David O'Connor. She also works with Linda Zang for dressage. Clinics with Betsy Steiner, Anne Kursinski, Capt. Mark Phillips, John Madden allow Lisa to further expand her knowledge and skills.
