Trainer & Instructor
Mary Wilson has been a part of the Arabian show industry since she was just ten years old. Starting with the foundation of dressage, Mary has had the opportunity to work with the best influences in multiple disciplines of the Arabian as well as Saddlebred industries. This background has contributed to the development of her training foundation today. Learning from John Rannenberg, Bob Battaglia, Barbe Smith, amongst others has helped fuel her passion of training possessing a natural feel and strong work ethic with a desire for success.
Mary brings a highly decorated and versatile show ring record in the Arabian and Saddlebred breeds. She was named the 2012 and 2013 Youth National Champion in Saddle Seat Equitation, Country English Pleasure 14-18, and was a member of the two-time Gold Medal winning 2013 USA Saddle Seat World Cup Team. Her accolades bring with her a variety of knowledge and experience, including specialization in Equitation, which allows her to provide an individualized and extremely detailed approach to coaching and training both the amateur rider and horse.
In 2018, Mary decided to open her own training facility in the heart of North Scottsdale. Taking her desire and drive for excellence and success, Mary looks forward to applying these to the future growth and success of her Youth and Adult Amateur riders.
