At first many don’t notice. Lizzy just rides, even though she was born without her left hand. Lizzy’s journey has been unconventional. Growing up at family-owned Carousel Farm, Lizzy spent inordinate amounts of time training the horses to do things limited only by her imagination. By age 7, she was performing bridle-less jumping routines, liberty, and tricks at national events. By age 11, she was teaching many topics at the biggest expos in the US and Canada and had produced the nationally acclaimed Taiji Horsemanship Training Series.
Quiet and understated in her mannerisms, Lizzy has become memorable and recognizable, as people see her get on mount after mount, developing a quiet balanced bond that results in consistent competitive performances. Often people do not notice that Lizzy does it all without her left hand.
With sights set high, Lizzy is deeply appreciative of the horses in her life and our incredible equestrian community. Lizzy invites you to join her on her uphill journey to becoming an internationally competitive show jumping rider.
