Heidi has been involved with horses her whole life and started riding competitively at an early age. She has been an active member of Pony Club winning the silver medal at National Championships in Show Jumping Level 3 as well as competing successfully at numerous Regional Rallies in Dressage, Eventing, Show Jumping and Quiz. She has also been involved with the USEA Young Rider program where she was selected to represent Area V at the North American Young Rider Championship at the CCI** level bringing home the gold medal with her team. Heidi went on to compete her horse Ocotillo through the Advanced level.
Heidi spent two summers as a working student for Karen and David O'Connor in Virginia. She rides regularly in clinics with Karen O'Connor, Will Faudree, and Sally O'Connor. Heidi keeps several outside horses in training and has been teaching riding lessons for about 7 years.
The new outdoor and indoor arenas at Sterling Silver Stables are completed. Designed and constructed by WordleyMartin, the new arena is getting rave reviews from Sterling Silver Stables riders. Craig Martin supervised the installation on-site which utilized local materials for the base and the imported footing materials.
The cross country course was completed in mid-April. J. Tremaine Cooper, one of the United States most renowned cross country course designer, was on site at Sterling Silver Stables to map out a new cross country course in early February.
Cooper included a combination of permanent and portable obstacles that will enable riders and trainers to ready their horses for horse trials and three-day events. He incorporated hill design for the typically flat Louisiana terrain.
Sterling Silver Stables permanent obstacles include a water complex with multiple routes (in and out), a bank complex, trakehner, ditches and more. The unique flow of the course will allow a clinician to observe riders and horses moving through the course from one vantage point. This increases the training possibilities for riders and horses.
Local flavor was also built into the course. The "crawfish" obstacle is attracting lots of attention from riders and the neighbors!
