Patti's Accomplishments

Below are some highlights showing Patti's most prestigious accomplishments.  Each year her goals become higher and this can be seen through her successes. Her ultimate competition goal is to represent the United States Dressage Team. This dream has become more real since being named to US Equestrian's Development Program as an potential Olympic contender in 2018 and 2019. In this time she is continuing to develop her talented string of horses towards the big rings at CDI competitions. 


Additionally, Patti is the recipient of five FEI Journey Awards; symbolizing that one rider has competed successfully at all the FEI levels with one particular horse. This was done with Romulus, Weltano, Sandor, Leoluigi, and Freedom. She brought several of these horses along from Training Level. This speeks volumes of her abilities as a world class rider, trainer, and horse person.
