I’d like to welcome a few new members of the MK Equestrian crew!  As with any working student program these two new girls will partake in many aspects of the game; hopefully they will enjoy the excitement of the competitions enough to get through the daily process of getting there.  If they end up like really “getting” this horse training thing they’ll realize partaking in the small miracles that happen each day is the best part of the sport.  Here’s to early mornings, long days and hopefully some laughs along the way!!

Madee Bailey

This girl has been riding her entire life and is no stranger to horses as her mother is in charge of a buggy riding business! Originally from Connecticut, she’s now a Lampeter Srasbourg student but has decided to study online for the year. This will enable her to work with us on a full time schedule and come with us to Aiken to start off her 2014 season.  So far she fits in quite well; she loves dogs – hers are named Sheila and Dixie.  Madee is currently training up an OTTB named Highland.

Claire Cooper:

At 22 Claire is a recent graduate of University of Delaware- she majored in Agriculture and Natural Resources as well as Animal and Food Science with a minor in History.
Luckily she also likes dogs :)- as a live in working student she got to bring hers with her; Luke the big brown Lab will be an eventing dog legend in no time!

Claire is also working with an OTTB named Tom the Builder.  When she’s not grooming or riding she can be found with a BIG camera getting some beautiful photos.
