Training young horses and young riders to be their best. We are focused on Maryland timber horses. We like to work with relatively inexpensive horses that were not successful on the flat. We try to teach them to love galloping and jumping cross country as much as we do. We fox hunt the majority of our horses.
My Experience and Background
I grew up fox hunting. I also rode pony races and eventually rode as an amateur both locally and in the ARCA flat races here and overseas. I worked for Elliott Burch, Bobby Frankel and John Shirreffs for brief stints at the racetracks and mostly Tom Voss with chasers on the farm. I rode as an amateur, primarily over timber. I rode in 13 Maryland Hunt Cups and twice over the big steeplechase course at Auteuil in France.
Married Blythe Miller (champion steeplechase rider) and the person who makes most of the training decisions. Combined with Blythe, we have six Maryland Hunt Cup winners ( 4 rider trophies and last two years as trainer) Senior Senator, the 2016 Hunt Cup winner, is the most difficult and exciting horse we have trained.
