Stephanie had the opportunity to work with green horses and spent a semester breaking an unhandled 2 year old Thoroughbred to saddle and teaching her basic skills such as clipping, tying, and trailer loading. After she “graduated” from Stephanie’s training, the filly went directly to the racetrack for additional training and was a successful stakes winner on the Ohio racing circuit.

Stephanie actively campaign her Irish Sport Horse, Clonshire Le Roy, at USEA sanctioned events and is working on bringing him up through the levels. She rides all of her horses solely in Prestige saddles because their saddle fit is impeccable and her horses are able to perform at their best.

In addition to competing, Stephanie enjoys a busy teaching schedule. Her students include riders of all levels, but they all share a desire for safe, systematic instruction that focuses on building a solid foundation through dressage, show jumping, and cross-country even if students do not want to compete. Stephanie believes that learning to ride outside of the ring is a crucial step in a student’s education and keeps both horse and rider fresh. Stephanie is a patient, caring instructor who strives to develop not only her students’ riding skills but also their horse management knowledge. She is certified with the American Riding Instructor Association and is also First Aid and CPR certified.

 Liz Foster – Barn Manager

Liz joins us with experience in the hunter/jumper industry working as a groom, instructor, and exercise rider. She took a break from horses to pursue a professional post-bac certificate in the field of risk/disaster management, and most recently completed a nine-month Peace Corps Response volunteer service in the Philippines. Upon returning to the States, she found herself drawn back to her horse roots and looks forward to being a part of the Irish Manor team!
