BARREL RACING COACH & TRAINER
Originally from California, the owner and trainer of Red Horse Training has traveled the country looking for the perfect place to call home, through vineyards of California to the ranges of Montana to Skyscrapers of New York, Caitlin has helped countless horses and riders better develop their connections with each other through her unique and quiet approach to training. With a strong background in classical dressage and firm background in equitation, she has taken these foundation steps in riding and applied them to bio-mechanical teaching and natural horsemanship techniques. Riders come away with a better understanding of what they need to do to subtly change their riding and why its important both mentally and physically to their horse.

Jessica Lynn Balogh
EQUESTRIAN FITNESS COACH
One of the biggest problems facing riders is being physically strong and flexible enough to be able to ride and continue getting better. Jessica, an avid equestrian with a background in dance and gymnastics saw the need for an equestrian workout program and went right to work developing a program that fits all levels and types of riders. As a dancer and a gymnast she learned the importance of strength and flexibility in order to accomplish her athletic goals and prevent injuries. She has taken this knowledge and applied it during her 10 years as a gymnastics coach, training gymnasts who have gone on to compete in college as well as vie for a spot on the Olympic team.
