Stacy began riding when she was twelve years old, taking lessons on draft horses with her riding discipline in mostly English. She has done lots of riding and rides regularly while here at Wilson. Her favorite thing about being at Wilson is the stables because they are very calming to her.
Stacey enjoys being close enough to walk to and work at the stables and says, “If you’re willing to learn and listen to the full time staff, it’s a positive experience.” She also says that the best memory she has made at Wilson so far has been hanging out with the barn staff on and off campus.
Some unique facts about Stacy are that she remembers names very well and knows almost everything about all of the horses in the stables such as their names, markings, sheets they wear, and their designated stalls and paddocks.
Stacey’s favorite equine movie is Dreamworks’ animated film “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.”
Haley first started riding at age eight and began competing at age fourteen mainly in Eventing, but has experience in hunt-seat and dressage. Now at Wilson, Haley is a member of the Eventing, Hunt-seat, and Dressage Teams. What she enjoys the most about being at Wilson are the friends she has made. Her best memory, she says, “Was winning overall champion at the Halloween show last year.”
A big “movie nerd,” Haley enjoys superhero, musical, and old classical films. However, her favorite equine movie is Dreamworks’ animated film “Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron.”
