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 the sport. Raised in Southern California, she was able to train with some of the top hunter, jumper, and dressage professionals on the west coast. Christine was independently educated throughout high school so that she could have the freedom to be more competitive and learn from a few of the best as a working student. After a very successful Junior career in both the hunters and jumpers, Christine decided to turn in her amateur card, become a professional, and relocated to Texas to start her own farm.

Christine has since produced a multitude of horses and riders that have successfully ridden to numerous championships at AA shows in Texas and surrounding states in various divisions. In addition, Christine earned her United States Dressage Federation Bronze Medal in 2012.
