Carolyn started riding and showing Hunters at the age of five at Hazelwild Farm under the tutelage of Fredericksburg’s own Elizabeth Morrison. At twelve her parents bought her first children’s hunter. She competed locally and on the A circuit as a teenager. During college summers she worked as a camp riding instructor at Hazelwild Farm, and continued her passion for equine education as the director of summer camps for K&L Sports in Montpelier, Va. As an adult, Carolyn has successfully shown her Dutch warmblood Wall Street News and in 1997 she became a professional starting her training career at Still Meadows Farm in Mechanicsville, Virginia and continuing through the years training as an independent contractor at several barns. Through the years she was lucky enough to work, ride for and clinic with many wonderful professionals including George Morris, Robert Crandall, and Teddy Ismond to name a few. In 2009, she started working for Woodside Equine Clinic which became an invaluable medical learning resource for her which rounded out her equine experience. In 2013 she opened her own boarding and training facility, Watermark Farm specializing in show Hunters in Beaverdam, Virginia.
