Nashea started riding when she was eight years old and lived next door to a Hunter/Jumper show facility. She started with lessons there and soon owned her first horse “The Sound of Music”. Together they learned the ropes and were famous in the Junior Hunter division at “A” and “AA” shows throughout the southeast. When she was fourteen she got her second horse, a jumper named “The Wiz”. Nashea’s talent qualified her with both of her horses to compete in the Junior Hunters, USEF Medal Finals, Jumpers and Amateur Owner Hunters at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show in Harrisburg three consecutive years. At Harrisburg Nashea earned ribbons in the hunters on “The Sound of Music” and was Champion of the North American League Jumper Finals on “The Wiz” in 2001 and placed fourth in 2002. She enjoyed her opportunities to ride under the instruction of many successful trainers during her career and has earned many championships at “A” and “AA” shows since becoming a professional. Nashea has been a big part of the Coriander Farm team since 2003, and has been invaluable in helping our students successfully compete, qualify and participate in Regional and National Horse Shows. She thoroughly enjoys being at the horse shows with her students whether we are in town or on the road.
Nashea’s love of the sport is reflected in her rapport with students of all ages and levels. She makes becoming a better horse person fun whether you want to compete locally or be a top premier show competitor!
