Beginning at Cross Winds Farm in Monroe, Kayla has been riding saddlebreds since age two and showing since age 4. Equitation has always been her favorite to ride and to teach. At the age of 7 she won the state championship in Raleigh in a class of 24.
After almost 15 years of showing saddlebreds it was her time to step down and do what she really enjoyed... instructing!
Kayla has been instructing a total of 3 years now.
As an instructor it is her goal to make sure her students are having fun while also gaining as much knowledge as they can about horses.
She owns a 10 year old rescue saddlebred named truth “the truth about love” as well as a 22 year old saddlebred named Ice “spotted in town”.
Evie started riding saddleseat at Knollwood Farms when she was 6 years old. She fell in love with horses and riding from a young age and loves taking care of them and helping others to learn about them.
When she moved down to Waxhaw she continued to ride saddleseat for a couple years and then decided to try her hand at Combined Training.
She has won many ribbons and year end awards even on horses she had to catch ride that day! Evie has earned 3 Athletic Letters from USEF and is well on her way to earning her fourth.
She is a 4-H horse club President and enjoys riding all English disciplines. She has a Quarter Horse named Zip that she rides dressage, jumping, bareback, backwards, you name it. They are best friends!
