Horse(s): Marshmallow

Discipline: Jumpers, Dressage

Steph joined Daisy’s team in 2016 after attending a clinic at her previous barn.  She has nearly 4 decades of riding experience but was at a loss with what to do with her pushy and barely trained Percheron mare “Marshmallow”.  

Over the last few years Steph and Marshmallow showed well in the walk/trot silver dressage {winning champion of their region!},  while also competing in the Hamilton Hunt jumper shows and debuted in their first hunter field trials with other fun activities like camping, hacking, hunting etc. One goal that was met this year was to get Marshmallow jumping 3 ft and consistently jumping courses of 2’6″.  Future goals for Marshy will be perfecting her training level tests for competition this summer and moving from Jumper to Hunter competition to fine tune her form over fences 

Since being on the DME team,  Stephanie made her life long dream a reality and quit her day job to focus on horses full time. She met her goal of passing EC riding level 6 and is currently teaching lessons in the riding school while she works toward her instructor certification.   She organized a large group of MJM Riding School students for their first summer of off schools showing and looks forward to working with Daisy and the MJM show team next summer.
