London Morin Dressage
London is an upcoming young rider with her sights set on the becoming a world class rider. London began riding as soon as she could sit up independently. She did her first horse show (lead-line) at just 18 months old.
London did some jumping when she younger but over the past couple years she decided to shift her focus to Dressage. London has competed on the local Dressage circuit since 2013. She has earned many year end awards and her bronze medal.
She was accepted into the Dressage for Kids TEAM program in 2017. Since then, she has organized a clinic at her home barn, DA Dressage. London was responsible for almost all of the work involved with the clinic ahead of time and the weekend of. She did a great job making sure everyone was welcomed, taken care of, and she kept things running organized all weekend. London also made sure Lendon Gray never ran out of tea.
London has grown up in a busy barn and spends her days in the barn helping her mom with daily responsibilities including horse care, stable care, lessons, camp, and even fixing fences. She is the first one to offer help to new riders during lessons and camp. She also spends her time riding as many horses as she can. Riding is her favorite part. She rides the barn’s lesson horses, her own horses & ponies, and sometimes even gets in a quick ride on her mom’s FEI horses. London currently owns and competes three horses, Scotty, an older and very special welsh pony. Da Vinci, an imported German Sport Pony trained through 4th level. Laurel, an imported German Sport Pony trained through 3rd level.
London currently trains with Olympic rider, Lendon Gray and USDF Silver Medalist rider, Angie Morin. She has also ridden with Olympic rider, Lilo Fore. London has her sights set on the Pony Championships as her next big goal! Visit London’s FB page to keep up with the latest news on her and her ponies!
London is currently sponsored by Spotted Horse Tack. For sponsorship opportunities please email Angie@DreamAcresEC.om
