FEI rider, trainer and competitor Fallon Blackburn truly loves working with all horses. At an early age, she was introduced to riding a variety of horses with different breeds, backrounds and temperaments by her mother, Kelly. She was taught to appreciate the talent that every horse gives and to cultivate it in a way that makes each horse shine. She believes that keeping your horse happy is the most important part of training and it shows. Some of the top judges in the world have complimented Fallon on the harmony between her and her horses. She has brought several horses along to Grand Prix including a rescued foundation Quarter Horse who went on to have a successful FEI career. In addition to a successful FEI record, Fallon has also competed in the Open Jumpers and through Training Level Eventing. Fallon has been invited to work with some of the best coaches in the world, including Conrad Schumacher, Ingrid Klimke, Heike Kemmer, Debbie McDonald, Scott Hassler, Volker Moritz, Jan Bemelmens, Mariette Withages and the #1 FEI rider the world Edward Gal.
In 2012, Fallon and her husband Nathan moved from northern Ohio to Jacksonville, North Carolina, where Nathan is currently stationed at Marine Corps Base Camp Lejeune. Fallon Blackburn is available for lessons and training locally in North Carolina and for clinics throughout the United States. Feel free to contact with any questions you may have or to schedule lessons for yourself or your farm. Thank you!
