Assistant Trainer Brittany Stanley
Brittany Stanley has a common goal for all the horses she rides and trains – to develop a partnership where the horses are happy, healthy, and confident in their work. Brittany’s equestrian education began in Missouri, where she rode jumpers as well as Morgan horses before falling in love with dressage. In 2013, she joined Lendon Gray’s Winter Intensive Training Program in Wellington, FL, where she trained her Swedish Warmblood mare and gained exposure to top international dressage coaching and sport. From there, she continued riding and training multiple horses professionally, culminating in a pivotal move to Denmark to ride full time for Morten Thomsen in 2016. As the head rider for Morten for 3 years, she broadened her knowledge from starting young horses to educating horses to Grand Prix. She has used those skills to develop her own training & sales business in Denmark, but in December of 2020 we welcome Brittany back to the United States and to Hilltop Farm in her new role as Assistant Trainer.
