Kasey grew up in Chatsworth, CA surrounded by horses from a very early age. Her mother shared her love for horses and riding with Kasey. She cleverly designed and created a "seat belt" of sorts so that she could stay on her wild pony! This only fed the addiction to the saddle life and she never wavered. While growing up, she was a member of the United States Pony Club. Her experiences in Pony Club cemented a strong foundation in many disciplines and very importantly, great horsemanship. She took her very first "official" dressage lesson with Hilda Gurney when she was 8 years old and instantly fell in love with the sport.
Kasey attended Chapman University from 2005 - 2009 and received her Bachelor's degree in Business Administration. In 2011, she began to travel to San Diego for monthly training sessions with Laurie Falvo. Nearly a year and several more trips later, an opportunity opened for her to become Laurie's assistant trainer... What a magic moment! With this opportunity, she has trained and ridden many incredible horses and has achieved her bronze, silver, and gold medals. Her current horse, Quisquillosa Jocha (or Quissa as she is known around the barn) and Kasey are competing successfully at Prix St. Georges and Intermediate 1. As a passionate student of all aspects of dressage, she enjoys training in and out of the saddle, going to competitions, and everything in between.
