At only 23, Mercedes has competed in the sport of dressage for a total of 11 years with multiple high point awards from training through fourth level, has also earned both her bronze and silver USDF medals.

In recent years, she has partnered with trainers such as Darci Bayney and Kelly Smith, incorporating dressage into their hunter/jumper programs.

Thumbtack Spotlight

Avalon Management

(6 reviews)

What do you love about your job?

I get to the spend the day outside working with people and horses. I used to be a classroom teacher, and this allows me to have the best of both worlds. I can be outside in the sunshine and teach people how to work with horses. My favorite part is being able to be at the barn all the time. Every day is an adventure there, and it makes wonderful stories for the dinner table.

Who or what inspired you to start your business?

I used to be a classroom teacher and had to deal with all the paperwork and working under the fluorescent lights all day. It gave me such a headache. Along with working with mountains of paperwork and legal jargon about what I am required to do, it was so restricting. Being a riding instructor, I get to work outside and actually have the freedom to teach people without any restrictions. It is very freeing.
