Carri Beach, Carrington Ridge Stables

Carri got the bug to start riding at the age of four due to her borther being in hippotherapy. From there, she went to ride on the APHA Circuit, going to Worlds at the age of five. She continued on in western pleasure and began to start barrel racing. After numerous years doing western pleasure, Carri turned her attention towards equitation and hunter jumpers. She spent several years competing on the GHJA circuit, as well as showing on the rated circuit. She has competed with and help run an IEA team. She went on to qualify for the Hunterdon Cup Equitation Classic during her junior years. Along the way, Carri has had the opportunity to buy, train, and sell numerous horses and ponies. She has been granted opportunities to ride under multiple trainers and work with a variety of horses. Carri is currently working towards obtaining a diploma in Equine Studies and a certificate in Equine Business and Management. She also writes Young Adult novels in her free time!
