Kristine Snellenburg grew up on eastern Long Island learning to ride and show. Her love of horses and riding was birthed at a young age. At that time, she could not imagine anything but spending the rest of her life with horses. Kristine obtained a Liberal Arts degree from Pace University with a Psychology and Equine concentration. While competing on the Pace Equestrian team, she qualified for the Intercollegiate Nationals four consecutive years. In addition to studying and competing, she rode as a local trainer. Kristine later became the Assistant Coach at Pace, competed in the Intercollegiate Alumni Division and was an adjunct professor in the Physical Education Department. She was competing at national horse shows, such as Devon, Harrisburg and the National in New York, all the while. Since then, Kristine has trained in The Hamptons, overseas, owned her own business out West, and continued to teach, learn, and advance her early love of all things horse. Since landing here in Tennessee, Kristine has coached the IEA Equestrian Team and has done freelance work both in training horses and giving lessons. Her passion is still horses, as well as teaching and training all levels of riders and horses.
