Trainer / Coach Extraordinaire
Chris Hickey, who rides and trains out of Oak Meadows Farm, has been coaching me since the Summer of 2016. As a national and international Grand Prix rider and trainer, Chris not only had a successful program that aligned with my goals, but his vision for me and my horses has pushed me to dream even bigger and work harder.
Unlike anyone I have ever met, Chris has an impressive eye on the ground that sees almost everything, sometimes even before I feel it. No matter what horse I am riding, he always has a toolbox of ideas, and suggests more than one possible solution since not every horse works the same — working with me until it starts to click.
Under his guidance, I am able to be proactive instead of just reactive with my riding, in addition to really being able to ask my horses to be both light in my hand while actively pushing from behind. Day to day, we constantly communicate about the differences in each horse and our plans for them, and I can really lean on him when I have questions about anything.
I feel incredibly fortunate that our paths have crossed, and I have the upmost respect for Chris not only as a successful rider, but an equally successful coach — and look up to him as both a mentor and a professional.
