Julie a USHJA Certified Trainer, began riding when she was five years old. Filled with ambition and a love for horses, Julie rode with the U.S. Olympic Show Jumping Coach, George Morris, for the first time when she was eight years old. By the age of eleven, she was jumping over four foot. Throughout her teenage riding and showing career, Julie was taught invaluable skills by her mentors Dianne Grod, Jerry Baker, and Bertalan De Némethy. After deciding that she wanted to become even more involved within the equine industry, Julie began her search for a hunter jumper facility with the intention of sharing her knowledge through teaching riding lessons to others. When Fairbrook Farm was purchased, Julie rapidly began to invest all of her time and energy into producing a one of a kind equestrian location. Twenty-five years later, through teaching techniques and trainer reputation, Fairbrook Farm has now become, as George Morris puts it, “a world class hunter/ jumper facility”.
