Katelyn Marie Hess

Katelyn Hess has started her professional career as a freelance trainer and rider. Hess Equine LLC has horses for sale at all levels and disciplines. We are based in Wellington, Florida. 
Hess started riding at the age of 5 she rode western for the first two years and then moved on to the English world. In 1999 Katelyn was fortunate to meet and train with Claire Harris from Fox Heath, in Furlong, PA, while under Claire’s tutelage Katelyn learned the finer points of equitation, Hess and her hunter “Kellogg” were a perfect pair in 2001 the couple compiled an impressive 11 champion and 7 reserve champion ribbons out of 18 shows finishing with a win at the AHS 2001 Finals. 2002 brought a new endeavor, Katelyn entered the world of Show Jumping under the watchful eye of Irish Olympian Kevin Babington while training with Kevin, Katelyn was fortunate enough to work her way from the Children’s jumpers through to the Open Jumpers compiling an impressive sport record along the way... its culmination being a member of the 2008 Zone 2 North American Young Riders Team and in 2009 advancing through EAP l and EAP ll. EAP (Emerging Athletes Program) a new program by USHJA provided Katelyn with an incredible experience with Melanie Smith Taylor. 2010 would bring new challenges and opportunities as it was time for Hess to declare Professional. Katelyn provides all levels of instruction from beginner equitation to advanced jumpers. Hess has developed a reputation for specializing in training and showing difficult horses be it a client’s horse or someone else’s project, Hess’ attention to detail is the same “total”.

"I am a self starter who requires no supervision, yet completely capable and comfortable working with a group in a support position or leading the effort in a position of responsibility. My dedication and commitment are the same, total. Understanding that the team and the goals of the team come first is what has made my 16 years in the equestrian world a successful and rewarding endeavor. As an individual or as part of a group my commitment to excellence is consistent. With complete confidence and trust in my trainer’s, I know that the harder I work the luckier I will get. I also understand that through trust and dedication to my horse the bond of friendship will become the bond of champions. It is my dream to represent my country in the Olympics one day; I will continue to work toward that goal with the help and steadfast resolve of my family and trainers. -Thank you. Respectfully, Katelyn Hess"
