about Christine Rishell
Owner & Trainer

Christine’s passion for riding started at the age of 5, and she has since spent her life devoted to horses and the sport. Raised in Southern California, Christine was enrolled in a private education program for developing athletes that allowed her the ability to train and work under some of the top Hunter, Jumper, and Dressage professionals on the West Coast. After a successful Junior career she became a professional, and relocated to Austin, Texas to start her own Hunter/Jumper business.

Christine has since produced a multitude of horses and riders that have successfully ridden to numerous Championships at both local and “A” shows in various divisions in Texas and surrounding states through the Grand Prix level. Christine earned her United States Dressage Federation Bronze Medal in 2012, and trains with enthusiasm, creativity, structure, respect, and humor while bringing classical horsemanship to her students.
