Ariel was fortunate to grow up caring for an riding horses at her family's farm in New Hampshire. After riding her Pony Pinocchio at
local hunter/jumper shows, she tried eventing and rapdily developed a passion for the sport. Training with Laurie Hudson and Sue Berrill,
Ariel competed through the one-star and intermediate levels while in high school. After graduating from the University of Vermont, Ariel
moved to Southern Pines, NC in the winter of 2012 to train and compete full-time in pursuit of her upper-level eventing goals. She began
riding horses for Annie Eldridge and is currently the head trainer at Annie's Setters' Run Farm. Ariel has produced several horses through
the advanced and three-star levels. With a talented string of horses and a supportive group of owners and people behind her, Ariel looks
forward to pursuing her goal of competing at the four-star level.
Daryl is originally from Michigan, but moved to the east coast to attend college and then started working for Denny Emerson, upon graduation. Darly graduated from Johnson & Wales University with a B.S. in November of 2007. Daryl also rode with, and worked for, Tom and Joan Davis at Flatlands Equestrian Center. While there, Daryl started her teaching career, and was able to become a Massachusetts Certified Riding Instructor. She also worked
with Karin Donckers, a top FEI event rider, in Belgium. Daryl says, "Union Station,my first advanced horse, had done a couple prelim events before I started riding him. We struggled with the jump to Intermediate but eventually, with a lot of work and determination, became an advanced pair. Rosie's girl had never competed before I started riding her. She took some time in the beginning but is now a successful Advanced horse. Most recently, Rosie won the CIC** at Virgina."
Anna Loschiavo operates Anna Loschiavo Eventing out of Chase Hallow farm which is based in Bradford, VT in the summer and Ocala, FL in the winter. "My horse education started with my mom who continues to help me with the horses and my business. At the age of 7 I joined the local Pony Club and achieved by B-rating at 15 years old. Over the years I have been lucky to have learned from some of the best equestrians. I started as a working student with area professional Jane Hamlin. I later was able to work for Olympian Phillip Dutton before working as a rider at Ann Kitchel's Huntington farm working under Grand Prix Dressage rider Deb Dean-Smith who I still train with. After developing my own business I have primarily ridden with David O'Connor who I am fortunate enough to train with extensively through the winter months. I have now produced three horses from scratch through the CCI** level earning my first FEI win this year at the Jersey Fresh CIC**. I continue to strive to bring each individual horse and rider to their full potential as I continue on my endeavor to be a competitive CCI**** rider."
I love coaching and teaching, and most of my accomplishments when I first came to the Upper Valley in 1991 revolved around my students' successes.
Starting in 2002 I brought several GMHA Juniors teams to the Northeast Young Rider Championships ("Lendon's Show") where they earned team and individual
medals and where Georgi Girl earned the Crown Juel award for High Score Mare. Many of my students have earned year-end awards in everything from schooling
shows to USDF programs. In 2007 I was invited to assist with the creation and implementation of the Vermont Tech Equine Studies program, where in addition
to coaching the dressage team I teach equitation and Riding Instruction I & II and advise the equine club. For the last 10 years I have been training
and competing Lexi, first in traditional dressage then, after a several year hiatus, in western dressage. The last 4 years have been very exciting for
us: 3 consecutive CDSS overall High Score championships and 3 High Score Western championships (2015, 2016, 2017), and 3 WDAA World titles in 2016.
We recently received two WDAA Lifetime Achievement awards, the Register of Merit and the Register of Achievement.
My name is William Jarrell and I started riding horses when I was 3 years old, and I love it. For the first several years, I thought
of horseback riding as a fun hobby, but as I began to appreciate the rewards of developing a partnership with a horse and working together to develop
new skills and achieve goals, it became a main focus in my life. I have been fortunate to work with amazing trainers from the beginning of my riding
career. Kathryn Cecere, who owns and is the head trainer at Harmony Horse Stables in Littleton, Massachusetts, where I ride, gave me a great foundation in both
riding skills and horsemanship. She also made sure that I was exposed to and got to work with an amazing array of horse professionals –
including Denny Emerson, Michael Page, Mark Russell, Sinead Halpin, Tik Maynard, and Suzi Gornall. I learned a ton from each of them! Working with
Tik Maynard, in particular, got me really interested in Natural Horsemanship and ways to incorporate it into performance training. Those experiences
really transformed my perspective on my riding, showing me how to deepen my bond with my horse, and use that to achieve new goals. Two highlights of my
career thus far would definitely be having the opportunity to compete in the Young Riders Championship twice, and finishing second in my first
Intermediate in Ocala this year.
I am a two star event rider based out of Hurricane Hill Farm in Chichester, NH. I manage the farm, run a training program and compete in Area 1 and down the East Coast. I started riding before I could walk, and shared my family's passion for horses. That translated into a career with horses.
Creating good foundations in horses and riders for a safe and harmonious partnership is what drives me as a professional horse person. The reward for
that work is being able to display that in competition. Two of my own horses I've brought up through Intermediate/2* level in Eventing. In 2015 I represented
Area 1 the North American Junior Young Rider Championships at the 2* level, also completing several other FEI 2* competitions with top 20 finishes with
my horse Beau Voyageur. My other previous mount was Over The Moon who I took from her first Beginner Novice through Intermediate before retiring her
