Megan is a nationally-acclaimed equestrian competitor from the Pacific Northwest, and a consistent champion in both the Grand Prix and Hunter rings, having accumulated numerous titles in her professional career. She grew up on a thoroughbred breeding/training ranch, where her parents were both competitive sport horse riders and trainers. As such, Megan has only rarely been out of the saddle, regularly competing on various breeds in multiple disciplines.
From her youthful indoctrination, Megan developed a unique capacity to work with horses and riders of all levels of experience and differing backgrounds. This allows her to evaluate their needs and create a custom training program to meet the needs of both horse and rider. Megan has a natural gift for developing and showcasing show jumping talent.
From Short Stirrup to the Grand Prix ring, Megan and the professional staff at Venture Farm will help you to develop and ultimately reach your riding goals.

Antonio grew up in Michoacan, Mexico and began riding and showing in the Queretaro and Michoacan circuits at the age of five. He won many local and national championships ranging from the Short stirrup to Young Riders. By age thirteen Antonio was teaching and starting young horses.
Antonio attained his degree in finance while continuing to ride and clinic with the likes of Leopoldo Palacios and Paul Weir. In 2009 he decided to make a career in horses and moved to the United States. He expanded his education along the way under such professional as Jeff Cook, Greg Best, and Peter Grey.
Antonio enjoys the challenges that the sport presents and the bond that is created with each and every horse. Helping horses improve with training and achieve goals imbues him with a sense of accomplishment. We are very fortunate to have him as one of our assistant trainers.
