Recently, Brittany competed in her first CDI's at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, FL with a Top 8 finish at the extremely competitive Small Tour. That allowed her to qualify in the I-1 Championships where she ended up 9th in the nation. She's had a 12th place finish at the 2015 USEF Developing Horse Championships and ended up 12th in the 2018 & 2021 USEF Young Horse Championships. In addition to that, she has participated in clinics and lessons with Debbie McDonald, Kasey Perry-Glass, Steffen Peters, Jan Ebeling, Scott Hassler, Gerhard Politz, Natalie Lamping, Anne Cizaldo, Lilo Fore, Janet Foy, Betsy Steiner and Jennifer Hoffman. From riding FEI to starting young horses, she has a wide spectrum of experience to pass onto her horses and students.
