USDF Bronze and Silver medalist. Linnet is currently competing two horses at Intermediare and aiming for Grand Prix 2019.
Linnet has a Masters Degree in Education and over 30 years experience in the equine industry. Linnet combined these two passions in 2002 to form Windswept Farm LLC. Initially an avid event rider, Linnet trained and competed multiple horses to the FEI level with great success. Linnet has multiple students that started in her eventing program and excelled through preliminary and intermediate levels, including many Pony Club graduates who achieved their A, HA, and B ratings.
In the fall of 2012 Linnet made the choice to pursue her deep love of dressage and purchased a lovely WB gelding, Cygaro. Since that time Linnet has had much success with Karen Leonard's Draft-Cross gelding Neko, a horse they have had since he was 3 years old. Neko and Linnet have competed thru I1 and are schooling the Grand Prix. Drifter's Way, owned by Lee Reilly, another horse they have had since 3 years old, has had a fabulous 2017 at the I1 level with Linnet and is currently schooling the Grand Prix.
In 2016 Linnet bought a young horse Expresso aka "Zazu". Zazu debuted at 3rd level in 2017, and proceeded to win almost every USDF class he entered. Currently planning to move up to 4th level and do a musical freestyle in 2018. Riding and training dressage has truly become a consuming passion for Linnet.
Windswept Farm is an exciting and relaxing environment that allows for full educational opportunities for both horse and rider. Windswept Farm is an active training barn that supports learning as the most important aspect of horsemanship; we have many clinicians from all over the world come to inspire us all.
