Morgan grew up outside Baltimore in a completely non-horsey family. A chance riding lesson at age eight and Morgan was hooked. Morgan began to work off lessons and riding at Woodlands Horse Center in Silver Springs, MD. For six years she ran their camp program and instructed their horse show programs, taking every opportunity to ride and increase her knowledge. She first worked with Dan during a clinic at Columbia Horse Center, where Dan recognized her ability and drive. After getting her associates degree in early childhood education, Morgan pursued her passion for horses, taking a position with upper level event rider Ryan Wood in 2015. She started with Dan and Kaitlin right from the beginning and has become an incredibly valuable member of the team.
Meticulous in her organization and both a capable rider and groom, she is the jack of all trades that keeps Clasing Equestrian running smoothly. She now also manages social media and sponsorship. If you want to know whats going on, ask Morgan!
Leah’s first horse came into her life when she was fourteen, and she hasn’t looked back, pursuing a career in the horse industry ever since. Leah comes to us with a strong background working with young horses, having held a position at the breeding and training facility Hilltop Farm. She worked both in their breaking department and as a groom to their assistant trainer. She has also held a working student position with upper level rider Lillian Heard where she gained valuable insight into the sport. She recently purchased ‘Winnie’, a young prospect she hopes to produce in the jumper ring.
Meredith started taking lessons and helping Dan at Yardley Hill Farm back in Maryland. Since Dan’s move to Kennett Square she has continued to help at competitions on weekends, providing a steady and experienced hand with our increasing number of competition horses. It’s not uncommon to see her at the trailer, cooling off one horse and handing Dan or Kaitlin the next. Her organization and calm outlook on busy days frequently save the day!
