Meet the Trainers

Cathy has been riding and coaching for over 40 years with numerous students progressing from grassroots into the Medal/Maclay and the Grand Prix level.  She has been responsible for the development of countless young horses that have gone on to win at the top of the sport.  Her multi-discipline background blended with solid classical horsemanship brings know-how that many simply cannot offer.

Kate has been riding under the guidance of Cathy throughout her life, as well as time training with Frank Madden, Stacia Madden, Anne Kursinski, Joe Fargis, Nona Garson, Carol Thompson, Willy De Leyer, and Bernie Traurig. After 10 years on the Appaloosa circuit, Kate began pursuing her hunter/jumper interests full-time. After several years excelling in the Junior Hunter, Jumper, and Big Eq ranks, Kate has gone on to produce multiple Grand Prix jumpers and successful hunters. With wins in YJC classes and Grand Prix, as well as a solid record competing in several Million Dollar Grand Prix and World Cup Qualifiers, Kate brings the experience that young horses need to confidently move up the ranks. Kate enjoys developing raw talent in both horses and riders, and guiding them through the levels in the hunter, jumper, and equitation ring.


Together, Cathy and Kate manage all of the day-to-day operations at North Ridge and on the road, which allows for direct communication between clients and management. Training and lesson programs are tailored to each rider and/or horse's individual needs.
