Carli is originally from Louisville, Kentucky and developed a passion for eventing as a kid, riding and competing anything and everything she could get her hands on. She started her eventing career on a 13.2 feisty Arab mare that she competed through training level.

Since then Carli has mostly ridden OTTB's and really loves working with them and bringing them along. She spent a summer at a training track galloping racehorses, learning how they tick and gaining invaluable experience.

Carli came to MIssy and Jess' after working for Stephen Bradley in Va, with the goal to work on her dressage. She brought along Kaiser, with whom she has had had a long and successful career with, including being 2012 USEF JR/YR CCI* National Champions. Missy helped her solidify her riding partnership with him, ultimately making the decision to retire Kaiser from upper level eventing. He is now very happy in his new home where he will run around beginner novice and novice with ease.

Carli is currently looking for her next partner...Probably an OTTB with a lot of personality and willingness to jump! Carli believes that Blue Hill is a great fit for her and feels like part of a huge family, and BHF is very happy to have her!!
