As the Olympic Trials approach all eyes are on Wellington, Fl & the Winter Equestrian Festival!
Sport Horse Int'l. Team wins over 13 divisions at the 2012 Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington Florida.
Her horses and students won in 13 divisions at the Palm Beach County Horseman's Association, including the Donatello/Marina Willson team who won the Tulocay Farm Jr/Adult Medal 3'/3'3"(Grand Champion); Grand Champion Meadowbrooks Transport Working Hunter 3'/3'3" and Reserve Champion same division, (different section); Calhoun Family Beginner Jumper Reserve Champion Sophia Gubbay and American Pie.
Kristin Schuttemeyer began riding at three years old in Long Island and competing at eight in the hunter ring. In 1988 she began riding with world-renowned trainer and judge, Margie Hough in Chicago, Illinois at Fields and Fences Farm.
At fifteen, Schuttemeyer purchased, broke, trained and sold her first young horse for a large profit after riding him in the Harrisburg Finals.
After completing her four year tenure with Hough, Schuttemeyer was offered the opportunity to go work with veteran Olympian and eight-time AGA Rider of The Year rider, Margie Goldstein-Engle. Schuttemeyer quickly proved herself to be one of the top talents in the US and as a result, began riding many of the Grand Prix horses at the Goldstein-Engle barn.
After learning business management and training from Goldstein-Engle, Schuttemeyer took the step at 23 to branch out and start a business of her own and made the move down to Delray Beach, Florida.
In 1996 she founded and still currently runs the powerhouse training business, Sport Horse Int'l. Sport Horse Int'l boasts a full barn of 42 horses in training, over 70 loyal clients, and national recognition of her own show jumping excellence and that of her many talented young riders. Aboard her Irish imported star mare, Lakeland Diamond, Schuttemeyer has enjoyed repeated success, including accepting Horse of the Year honors in 2002 and being nationally ranked among the best jumper horses and riders in the world.
Kristin has competed in Wellington prior to 2012 and won her first Mini Prix aboard Jacob, owned by Joseph Isreal. Sporthorse Int’l is also the proud home for the only approved US Pony Club Riding Center serving the community within 200 miles, our own IEA Team and our little non-profit that could, the Fidelis Foundation.
