INSPIRE, EDUCATE, ENTERTAIN and COMPETE…. is what Lizzy likes to do with her horses. Born with only one hand, she embraces life with a compassion, determination and dignity that is beyond her years. She has wonderful results with her horses based on her love of her horses, effort to understand them and consistent and basic training approach. Born and raised on a sport horse breeding and training farm, she has always placed a priority on learning ….seeking out every and any learning opportunity made available. Lizzy is a nationally competitive rider in the hunters, jumpers and dressage and has performed bridleless jumping, hippodrome and roman riding routines at some of the biggest national and international equestrian events often times on young homebreds. She has been a national clinician at many of these venues as well with an extensive list of topics taught. Lizzy considers having horses in her life to be an incredible privilege and gift. She sees her most important roles as that of an advocate for ” The Horses” and “The Horse Industry”. Lizzy likes implementing and being a part of activities that can help to insure a quality of life for these amazing animals and contribute to the dedicated community and people around them.

Lizzy was born and raised on Carousel Farm, her family’s farm in Centre Hall, PA.  On over 105 acres, Lizzy has always considered the farm to be the most amazing playground in the world and more importantly a place for her horses to call “home”.

My Olympic Quest

Since the time I was little…even when I found myself jumping more jumps then my pony tumbling onto the other side, while he stood quietly on the front side looking at me, I would see myself one day on that Olympic podium with a gold medal around my neck. I believe in this dream and no matter what……. plan to embrace the journey!

Thank You!!!!

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to meet and work with some amazing people. I have met some of the countries best riders, trainers, competitors and entertainers. I have met the heads of major companies from around the world. They all have one thing in common, they are passionate about what they are doing and their success wasn’t by chance. They work hard to do what they do well. They had people who taught them what they know and helped them along the way. The very best are always willing to take what they have learned and share it with others with good intentions.

Taiji Horsemanship

Taiji – Obtaining your supreme ultimate as a result of perfect balance and harmony!

Founded March 28, 2009.
The IN Sync Series (Five Modules- shown below) was released November 9, 2011

After two years of intensive planning, video taping and editing the Taiji Horsemanship In Sync Training Series was released. It is truly “THE Tools and Exercises” that I use to start and maintain all my horses! It takes the skills and experiences from the many worlds that I am a part of….perfomance, liberty and trick training, hunter & jumper training and upper level dressage training ….making it a very unique and effective program. Started when I was only 11 and completed at age 13, I can assure it is a training progression, that is super easy to follow. Using the In Sync tools…I competed my young horse purchased as an unbroke two year old (who is now 6 years old) to top ribbons at this years National Junior Hunter Finals, had one of the highest national FEI junior rider dressage tests in (2014), won a Junior Jumper class at the USHJA Zone 2 Jumper Championship(2015) and have performed and taught bridleless riding at many of the biggest equine events nationally and internationally.As a national competitor, this is what I am still using today to train high hunters, jumpers, dressage, bridleless, trick and liberty horses.

EPN is my latest project. EPN was founded two years ago after watching my mentor, Elizabeth Solter struggle with billing, marketing and networking. EPN is a company with the goal of providing tools using the latest technology to make management, marketing and networking as easy as possible for equestrian professions. One tool is in beta testing and a second is under development. We have some cool stuff in the works…….you will have to wait and see!


I want to see every horse, rider, professional and all members of our equestrian community on an amazing journey! Taiji Horsemanship and EPN are two of my projects that I am very passionate about!

Her skills are well beyond her years. She learns by listening. She learns by watching. She odesn’t have to ask a whole lot of questions. If you just kind of sit back and watch, there is a way to do it. She figures it out. There’s really nothing she can’t do!
