Holly has been riding and showing since the age of 8. She
started with 4H and soon moved into showing Morgan horses at breed
shows on the east coast and Nationals. She received her equine
degree from SUNY Cobleskill, where she was a member of their stock
seat team. She rides and competes in hunt seat, western, saddle
seat, dressage, and driving. She has worked with a variety of
trainers of Regional and World Champions while also coaching riders
to local and regional championships.
In January of 2012, Holly opened her equine facility, Riesling Ridge, in Branchport, New York where she trains both horses and riders. The barn is equipped with twenty stalls, two heated tack rooms, two heated wash stalls, and a 144' x 72' indoor riding arena. Riesling Ridge also sports an outdoor ring.
