Christine’s passion for riding started at the age of 5, and she has since spent her life devoted to horses and the sport. Raised in Southern California, Christine was enrolled in a private education program for developing athletes that allowed her the ability to train and work under some of the top Hunter, Jumper, and Dressage professionals on the West Coast. After a successful Junior career she became a professional, and relocated to Austin, Texas to start her own Hunter/Jumper business.
Christine has since produced a multitude of horses and riders that have successfully ridden to numerous Championships at both local and “A” shows in various divisions in Texas and surrounding states through the Grand Prix level. Christine earned her United States Dressage Federation Bronze Medal in 2012, and trains with enthusiasm, creativity, structure, respect, and humor while bringing classical horsemanship to her students.
Axxel has been with Westridge for the last few years, and is our head Groom! He plays a vital role in our program overseeing not only the day-to-day care of our horses, but ensures each horse is prepared correctly and turned out their very best! Foxglove LLC’s MTM So Fly took home Second overall in the 2023 Regular Medium Pony Model, and this is a testament to his attention to detail and quality of care!
Jose has been with Westridge the longest, and is our Property Manager and magic man behind the scenes! Jose can fix absolutely anything, build anything, and is in charge of the care and maintenance of all the equipment, grounds, and helps oversee the horses as well. We are so fortunate to have him!
