Susie grew up at The Saddle and Bridle Club, and therefore she's committed to continuing the tradition and superior quality service that's been a hallmark of the club. In addition to her involvement with SBS, she's immersed in the equine industry and was inducted into the National Show Hunter Hall of Fame in 2014.
Susie has served as the Executive Director of BTRC since 1990, has been a United States Equestrian Federation (USEF) and United States Hunter Jumper Association (USHJA) Board Member and served on a variety of committees and task forces. She currently sits on the USEF Drugs and Medication Committee and is chairman of USHJA Zone 2. Susie is also a sought-after USEF R-rated judge and has presided over the best shows in the country. In 2010, Susie became one of the first USHJA-certfied trainers.
She's trained five USEF National Champion horses, including Gabriel, GG Valentine, Big Bad Wolf, Kansas and Jersey Boy. In addition, SBS-trained riders have accomplished major wins in the hunter and equitation ranks, including Stephen Comunale, Lauren Gioia, Kacey McCann, Katherine Newman, Grace Weidner and Luke Olsen.
Of late, Susie may be best known as the owner of Jersey Boy, the three-time USEF Horse of the Year (2009-11) and winner of the 2012 USHJA International Hunter Derby Championship. Jersey Boy is the USHJA International Hunter Derby Lifetime Standings money-won leader, with more than $260,000 to his credit as of 2015. He's also a three-time winner of the George H. Morris Perpetual Trophy, awarded to the Leading Horse of the International Hunter Derby Member Event Championship Qualifying Series.
