She began her journey in the west, then moved to New York to work with Lendon Gray and now she is at Cloverlea in Connecticut. Annie continues to improve her riding with Beth's help as they apply truly classical principles to improve each horse to his or her potential. Annie has trained, shown and taught horses through Grand Prix. She has ridden extensively with Lendon Gray and worked with Lilo Fore, Henk van Bergen, Kathy Connelly, Axel Steiner and more.
