ABOUT

Through an unwa­ver­ing sense of com­mit­ment and dis­ci­pline to her sport, Kristin has enjoyed event­ing suc­cess from an early age. In 2003, she was named the US Event­ing Association’s Young Rider of the Year, a year in which she was the top-placing Young Rider at two CCI*** events win­ning the Markham Tro­phy Cham­pi­onships in both the Spring and Fall. That same year Kristin won indi­vid­ual sil­ver and team gold medals at the North Amer­i­can Young Rider Cham­pi­onships. In 2004 she was awarded the Lionel Guerrand-Hermes Memo­r­ial Trophy—an annual award pre­sented to a Young Rider, age 16–21, who best exem­pli­fies the ideals of horse­man­ship and sports­man­ship. And at her very first 4-star out­ing, Kristin made a dis­tinct impres­sion in the event­ing world by plac­ing 7th nation­ally and 12th inter­na­tion­ally at Rolex CCI**** in 2005. Kristin built on these early suc­cesses with a long list of impres­sive accom­plish­ments thanks to her com­pet­i­tive mounts and new prospects imported from Kedrah House in Ire­land. To date, she has suc­cess­fully com­peted at inter­na­tional events through­out Eng­land, Canada and the United States. She has been named to the USEF Devel­op­ing Rider List twice and was named an alter­nate mem­ber of the US Event­ing Team for the 2011 Pan Amer­i­can Games in Mex­ico. Most recently, in 2013, Kristin and Ballylaffin Bracken placed 25th at Rolex, his first CCI4*. Looking to the future Kristin hopes to help the United States win medals and be known as an eventing force to be reckoned with!
