Kris is a USDF Bronze, Silver and Gold Medalist as well as a USDF certified instructor through 2nd level.
She grew up riding with Janet Foy (now an FEI 5* Dressage Judge), including spending spent summers and holidays and being a working student before she went to college.
After College, Kris became the trainer at Spring Creek Equestrian center outside of beautiful Jackson Hole Wyoming, , where she continued to work with Janet, but also ride extensively with Linda Zang Debbie McDonald, Stephen Peters and Reinhard Neilson of Grunwoldhof Germany as well. . One of her most treasured experiences was being chosen to ride with Kyra Kirkland in the 1998 USDF Symposium. Kris met Betsy Steiner during the USDF Instructor certification process and rode with her in California. She moved to Va in 2000 and started working with Debbie Bowman who she’s worked with consistently with for 10 years.
In 2016-2017, Kris have been working toward her 200 hour yoga certification in a gentle restorative yoga style. She will complete the certification this spring. She believe that they go hand in hand to help the riders to become more supple and adjustable while riding.
