Little Hunter Farm
Owner & Trainer
Having been involved with horses for over 35 years, Olivia rode extensively as a junior and amateur winning top ribbons and year end awards. She took a break from riding to complete her education and start a family. After receiving a Bachelors of Science in Nursing, as well as trauma certification, she worked as an acute care nurse for many years. In addition, she attained a Masters in Business Administration. Both of these educational accomplishments have allowed her to develop a perspective of working with and treating every person as an individual, while developing a keener awareness of the physical wellbeing of both her riders and her horses.
As a professional, her own prior riding success, particularly in the equitation ring, is evident in the success of the riders she trains. For Olivia, her passion for horses and riding, and the ability to share that with others is what training is all about
