Katie

 

Katie Young has been actively involved in the horse business for over 45 years. After spending her childhood riding, she enrolled in the Horse Master School at Pacific Horse Center directed by Larry Langer in 1976. Upon graduation she worked at PHC for the following five years, as Barn Manager, Assistant Instructor/Trainer and Horse Master Instructor.

She spent several years operating a successful Hunter/Jumper stable in Albuquerque, NM, before founding Coriander Farm in Jacksonville in 1992.  Her students have had many successes locally, regionally and nationally. Among those successes were her daughter Megan’s wins of the North American Equitation Championship, USEF Medal Finals and Maclay National Championship Finals. Katie is a Registered USEF Hunter, Hunter Breeding, Jumper and Hunter Seat/Jumper Seat Equitation Judge.

She believes that tailoring services to meet the needs of her individual clients and her vigilance in matching horse and rider has been the key to maintaining a successful business throughout the years. What makes the horse business so rewarding to Katie is the opportunity to help shape and instill positive values, confidence and self esteem in the many young and dedicated participants at Coriander Farm.
