Katie Young – Owner
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. Since then she has had successful Hunter/Jumper businesses throughout the South and began 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 Equitation Judge. She has served on the Board of the USHJA and on its Horse and Rider Advocates committee.
She believes that tailoring services to meet the needs of her individual clients and her care in matching horses and riders 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 character, instill confidence and self esteem in the many young and dedicated riders.
