Meredith Keesee

Meredith found her love for horses at a very young age. She started taking lessons at Carlton Farms when she was five years old. Growing up riding in their hunter/equ based lesson program; competing with VHSA, BHSA, TWH, MPHSA , HRHSSA and many other Virginia Hunter series; she decided to take a break from showing. During this break, she found her love for eventing and her true heart horse. When she was 18, she was offered the position to teach a few lessons at Carlton Farms, these few lessons slowly grew into a day to day lesson program. With her love for eventing, she tries to gear all of her riders towards that discipline but also offer a hunter/jumper/equ style. Her and her magnificent horse have recently gone back to competing at 3-day events. And she strives for the students to follow her!
