Laney started riding when she was 7 years old. She grew up in Cincinnati Ohio where she leased and showed OTTB’s. She started her riding career in the hunter/jumper discipline but as she advanced started to focus more on jumpers. Through high school she showed on an IEA team that helped her love for the sport grow. She graduated from Ohio University in 2019. Through her time at OU she was an active member of their IHSA team. Being a member of OUET made it clear to her that she wanted a lifelong equestrian career. The summer of her junior year she had an opportunity to be a working student at Ride The Sky Stables. This made her fall in love with training young horses and teaching young riders. She is now excited to share her experiences and passion with her students to help them grow into well rounded equestrians.
