Stable Manager / Instructor
Kiristin's love of horses started at an early age, she grew up riding locally at a lesson barn and by age 13, her passion for horses was undeniable. As her first job in the industry, she took a position as a working student. She began to learn the ins-and-outs of how a barn was managed, she also assisted her instructor in teaching riding lessons of all levels. Finding a niche in working with kids, Kirstin was offered a position to be the head counselor at their equestrian summer camp throughout her high school years. After college she was finally able to become fully invested in the industry, and took a position as a head groom and assistant instructor at a private Hunter/Jumper facility.
Thriving in her New Position, she was offered the opportunity to have a horse of her own. Not long after that, she fell in love with a rescue pony named Poco. After seeing her dedication to Poco's rehabilitation, she was offered a position here at HM Equestrian & Sport Horse as Assistant Barn Manager and Groom. Over the last year, Kirstin has spent extensive time working one-on-one with Heather to perfect her eye and knowledge as an instructor and rider. In recent, Kirstin was promoted to Head Stable Manager and Instructor. Her excitement and commitment is a solid addition to our team here at HME!
