Taylor developed a passion for horses and equestrian sports while growing up in Long Island. She started as a catch rider in the pony dividsion where she learned to adapt and modify to each specific ride. Upon moving to Texas, she started riding at Kingsbridge Farm. At Kingsbridge she had the opportunity to continue her show career, as well as train sale horses and coach young riders.
Taylor and her horses Niko, Apollo, Ling and Revy joined the Lone Star family in 2014. She strives to create a positive learning environment for our horses and riders.
Horses have always been a part of Christy's life. She grew up riding in her backyard. Her daughters, Madelyn and Courtney, both inherited the "horse gene" as they both love riding. It was their interest in hunter/jumper riding that led Christy to the world of English riding in 2005, and she hasn't looked back since. In 2007, Christy developed Lone Star Stables so she could share her love for horses with the Westlake community.
Carly's equestrian career began over twenty years ago in Georgia. A childhood of equestrian successes and work as an assistant trainer led to her accepting a scholarship to ride for the University of South Carolina's NCAA Equestrian Team in 2003. She helped the hunt seat team to earn national titles in 2005, 2006 and 2007 and acted as team captain during the 06-07 season. Upon moving to Texas, she worked as a trainer, rider and manager at Madrone Ranch Stables.
Carly strives to instill confidence, drive, responsibility, compassion and sportsmanship in her students. She hopes to help students of all ages and skill levels achieve their various goals in and out of the arena.
