Rachel grew up in Palos Verdes and began her riding career at the age of 6. She rode locally until 2001 when she moved to Elvenstar to further her riding and take it to a national level. Throughout her junior years, she successfully competed across the country, as well as at Spruce Meadows in Canada riding on the West Coast Active Riders Prix de Nations’ team.
In 2006, Rachel moved to Orange County for college and joined the Elvenstar OC team. It was at that point in her life that she knew she wanted to make this a career. She started out running our Summer Camps and teaching our beginner lessons. In 2010, after graduating from Chapman University, Rachel took over the managing and head trainer position. Since then, she has helped numerous students achieve great success at the local and national levels.
Rachel strives for Elvenstar Orange County to be more than just a place to learn to ride and train, but an extended family of students and instructors. She encourages our clients to be true horsemen that enjoy all aspects of this sport from riding and showing to the horsemanship and care of their partners.
