American Eventing ChampionshipsThe head trainer at Sterling Silver Stables since 2010, Laura offers training for all stages of the horse’s development—from starting the young horse to training the advanced level eventer.

Laura started riding as a young child and over the years has garnered a wealth of experience in different areas of horsemanship. She has started many yearlings for the racing industry, including horses for two-time Breeder’s Cup winner Michael Dickinson. She was the assistant trainer and barn manager for US Olympic rider Philip Dutton at True Prospect Farm and, before that, assistant trainer for dressage rider Scott Hassler at Hilltop Farm in Maryland. Throughout her career, she has trained with some of the best instructors in their disciplines, including Philip Dutton, Jack Le Goff, and Jimmy Wofford in eventing as well as Betsy Steiner and Scott Hassler in dressage. Today, Laura is a top-level event rider, successfully competing at the advanced level with many top placings in international competitions.

At Sterling Silver Stables, Laura offers an introduction to classical equitation as well as instruction in all phases of eventing including dressage, cross country training, and show jumping. Laura is currently accepting students from novice through advanced on an individual or full-time training basis. She is also available for group lessons and clinics.
