Robyn was introduced to horses at the age of 4 when her family moved to a small dairy farm in Pennsylvania. A Shetland pony became her obsession and there was no turning back. At the age of 6 Robyn began taking lessons at a hunter/jumper barn where she spent every spare minute. She participated in their working student program as well as local 4-H and horse shows until age 19.
In 2000, Robyn attended a clinic that introduced her to the Tom Dorrance, Ray Hunt and Buck Brannaman. styles of horsemanship that she currently continues to practice and teach. After some time she started many colts and worked with several horses that were considered "problem" horses earning a reputation as the "boot camp" trainer that was good at helping troubled horses.
Through one of her clients, Robyn met Melanie Smith Taylor who recognized her natural riding and horsemanship skills. Melanie has become a mentor for Robyn and subsequently invited Robyn to become an associate in 2018. Melanie has afforded Robyn the opportunity to work with many top horsemen including Buck Brannaman on many occasions in the past few years. Robyn teaches weekly horsemanship workshops at Melanie’s Wildwood Farm in Germantown, Tennessee. Melanie and Robyn also give clinics together around the country incorporating the important principles that connect the groundwork, flatwork and jumping.
