Lauren started riding dressage after a broken leg ended her short-lived (and really rather bad) figure skating career. It was the best career change the then 11-year-old could have ever asked for, and only seven years later, Lauren cantered down centerline in her first international competition.
Lauren has represented the United States at three North American Young Rider Championships, and began competing at Grand Prix before aging out of the Young Rider program. By 24, Lauren was on the radar of the United States Equestrian Federation as a candidate for senior team competition.
Lauren studied Public Policy and Urban Planning at Sarah Lawrence College, Yonkers NY, but upon her graduating in 2006 she became a professional rider and trainer. She currently runs her own training business, Sprieser Sporthorse, from her own Marshall VA facility.
Lauren is also a well-read and award-winning blogger for the Chronicle of the Horse, and enjoys distance running and triathlon.
