Elise rode under the tutelage of Richard and Patty Rogers at Branch Hill Farm in Cincinnati from her first pony through the junior hunters. The Rogers and their clients then joined the nationally recognized Hunter/Jumper barn, Lochmoor Stables.
Elise continued her equestrian education as part of the Auburn Equestrian Team where she won two national championship titles and gained invaluable experience riding top horses around the country. After college, she had the privilege of working with and riding for the late Mindy Darst, and her broad show experience includes spending the 2013/14 show season in Wellington as a highlight of her career, and sending several students to compete at US Pony Finals.
Elise has demonstrated that not only is she an asset to have as a trainer at Palladia Farm, but she is also a proven performer in the show ring! She works with students at all levels and you will often find her competing on behalf of Palladia at shows year round.
