Ali Barros

Ali Barros is a twenty-three year old graduate student from Medway, Massachusetts that currently resides in Eads, Tennessee on a small private farm. Ali has spend the last three years eventing with her Off-The-Track-Thoroughbred, Let It Rock (JC: Sword's Pride; a 2002 chestnut gelding by Sword's Dance [IRE]). She grew up as a working student for several top hunter jumper barns in New England where she competed in the Junior Hunters, Hunter Derbies, Children's Jumpers, and Equitation. In 2012, she was recruited to ride for The University of Tennessee at Martin's (UTM) NCAA Division 1 Equestrian Team where she rode on the team for her freshman year. She graduate from UTM in 2015 a semester early with cum laude honors with a degree in Political Science and Public Relations. In 2016, she adopted Talon's Of Tuscany (dark bay gelding by Arch) from Second Stride in Prospect, Kentucky. She has done the restarting post track and training entirely herself. He will debuting in the Baby Green Hunters in 2018. After running training level at Dunnabeck in 2017, Ali retired Let It Rock from eventing and returned to hunter jumpers where she will campaign him in several hunter derbies this season. She also purchased a twenty two month old Oldenburg Stallion by Harmony Bay two months ago to bring along as her future hunter derby mount. She is also an accepted trainer in the 2018 Retired Racehorse Project Thoroughbred Makeover where she will be representing Barros Sporthorses, LLC in the show jumping division. Ali hopes to become a young professional in the coming years, but currently owns her own marketing agency while she finishes graduate school.

Clara Dendtler

Hi, my name is Clara Dendtler and I am from Atlanta, Georgia! I own a thoroughbred mare, Quintessential a.k.a Quinn, who I compete in hunters. Quinn had colic surgery a little over a year ago but is now fully rehabbed and is stepping into the rated show ring for the first time. Quinn and I compete at A shows in the Southeast as well as local shows. When I’m not riding Quinn, I love competing in IEA. I have also shown Arabians for the past year, finishing top 5 in every class at Regionals. I am so excited to be partnered with Southern Equestrian this year! 

Anna Grace

Anna Grace Ross is a native of Grayson, Georgia, where she is attending Loganville Christian Acadamy and rides out of Bay Creek Farm in Loganville, Georgia.  She has been riding since she was seven years old.  Since then she has been riding competitively in equitation and hunter disciplines in Georgia and South Carolina and doesn’t plan on slowing down!  She has been very successful, winning year-end championships in almost every event she has competed in and campaigned two of her horses simultaneously last season.  In addition to her success in the ring, she also has found fulfillment in leaning to train as well.  In particular, she was featured by the Georgia Equine Rescue League for the turnaround of her rescue pony China into a blue ribbon champion.  Currently, she is rehabbing a warmblood for another rider in her barn.
Whether she is in the practice ring, walking around a show, or just out with friends, Anna Grace is sure to be sporting Southern Equestrian.  Anna Grace lives the equestrian life and enjoys nothing more than sharing her love for horses with everyone she meets.  Southern Equestrian reflects her personality and their unique designs always strike up a conversation with new acquaintances. 
Anna Grace is a rabid fan of the University of Georgia’s equestrian team, the ManeDawgs, and hopes to be a member of their national championship team upon her graduation from high school. After that, she hopes you will see her wearing Southern Equestrian while attending medical school.

Hi! My name is Kasie McCorkle and I ride with Ellabron Stables in Georgia. I’m 14 years old and have been riding for about eight years and showing at the local level. For the 2018 season, I will be showing my mare Applause aka Mira, from local to rated shows.  Mira is an 11-year-old large flea-bitten grey WelshX pony.

Hi! My name is Cailyn, and I'm very happy to say that I am an ambassador for Southern Equestrian! I currently compete in the AQHA, APHA, NTHJC and 'A' rated circuit. I currently show mainly in the hunters, equitation, medal classes, reining, ranch riding, showmanship and horsemanship. I was a finalist in AQHA Level 1 Championships in both my classes last year and have qualified for the show again this year, along with AQHA Youth World. I also placed in the top five at AJPHA Youth World last year in the hunter hack, and I plan to show there again this year. Besides the world shows, I'm excited to show my filly in the futurities at the All American Quarter Horse Congress in the fall. Additionally, I plan to show my gelding in more 'A' shows this year, as well as qualify again for medal finals on my local circuit, which we have won for the past two years.

Lauren Stebbins

 

My name is Lauren Stebbins and I am a 17-year-old equestrian from Atlanta, Georgia. I show in the hunters and the equitation at A/AA shows on the east coast with my two horses. I began riding western when I was five years old but it was not until I was twelve when I switched to English and started competing in my school’s IEA program. This past season was my fifth season with my IEA team. I began showing on the A/AA circuit with my first horse when I was a freshman and since then, I found my two current horses, Shady and Cooper, who have brought me so much joy. When I am not riding, I pursue equine photography, which has been a passion of mine for the past three years. 

 

 

 

Catherine Swistek

Hi, my name is Catherine Swistek and I am so excited to be a Southern Equestrian Ambassador!  I am 13 years old and I’ve been riding for three years.  I am a native of Dahlonega, Georgia and am currently and will continue to show in the hunter divisions.  I have shown at the local level and won reserve champion and champion in several classes, including mini-hunter and pre-short stirrup in the 2018 season.  I plan to continue riding in local shows as well as A-rated shows in the 2019 season.  I am a member of USEF and plan to join GHJA in 2019.  My first horse that I leased was Shiane, a Mustang mare who was 12 years old and I won many ribbons with her.  I am looking to purchase a horse in the near future. My plan is to attend Auburn University’s and/or UT Martin’s summer equestrian camps in 2020, and my ultimate goal is to be in the 2028 Olympics.  I am active in student council, 4-H, and FFA at my middle school and would like to start up an IEA team at Lumpkin County High School, which is where I will go in 2020.  I am really looking forward to showing off the Southern Equestrian name!

I am a person that wears many hats- Police Officer, Army Sergeant, mother, IEA coach and of course Equestrian! Horses have been my passion since I was about 5 years old. At 16, I bought my first horse, Rajah. He is an Arabian with a huge heart. He will turn 32 this year and is still jumping and teaching lessons! I show hunters, Jumpers and eventing in the Middle Tennessee Area. I showed IHSA for Middle Tennessee State University and I am currently an assistant coach/manager of an IEA Team. I have two step-daughters- Lilly (15) and Shyanne (13). Lilly shares my passion for horses and rides hunters and eventing as well. Lucky Fox Farm is our home in Murfreesboro. We love helping horses find jobs they love and where they can be successful. Things may be busy for us but we are very passionate about our sport!
