Lisa Apted is an experienced upper level event rider. Her objective is to produce confident and well-rounded horses and riders by providing a strong foundation and good horsemanship. With determination and hard working qualities, she has developed many horses with no prior eventing experience to the upper levels of eventing and show jumping. While riding and training is a large part of her life, teaching is her passion. She has been privileged to work with many top riders and trainers, including Leslie Law (Olympic Gold Medalist), Lainey Ashker (5* event rider), Donna Gatchell (Intermediare I Dressage Rider and VADA/NOVA trainer of the year for the past 5 years), Skyeler Icke-Voss (4* event rider and top Young Rider coach), and Ashley Adams (5* event rider), to provide her with the necessary education to teach a variety of students and horses of all levels. From managing full upper level show barns to being an instructor, she is committed to providing a positive and supportive learning experience and atmosphere to all aspects of riding, teaching, and horse care.
