Kate Cassidy


2016 NAYRC Region 7 Dressage Team and U-25 Grand Prix in 2017

About Kate

I began riding when I was two years old, and I have had the horse bug ever since! My love for dressage started with my first horse, Aavignon Andante, seven years ago. Together, we have trained up the levels and debuted at Prix Saint Georges in 2015, earning a 65.4% our first time out. My other horse, Pellegrini, and I were the 2015 NAYRC Region 7 Team alternate by 0.3% and we took the 2015 USDF Region 7 Young Rider Championship title with a 69.342%. Pelle and I also debuted our first Intermediate 1 test in 2015 and received a 64.3% together. Currently, I am riding Donna Richardson’s Welt Erbe in hopes of making the 2016 NAYRC Region 7 Dressage Team.

My "can't live without" Romfh product

It's definitely a tie between my Sarafina breeches and my Competitor Long Sleeve shirts. The Sarafina breeches have been a staple in my closet for years and the shirts keep me cool and dry in the Southern California heat.

Something you might not know about me

I have three miniature ponies at home that I teach tricks to and jump for fun

Whacky superstitions or traditions

I always talk my horse through my test’s pattern before we leave the stable so we both know where we are supposed to go beforehand
