Hooligan was Laura’s first horse. Laura’s parents told her that she could have a horse when she could afford to buy one. After countless hours of mucking stalls Laura had finally saved the funds to buy the 12 year old Morgan-Standardbred cross she had met and fallen in love with at a summer riding camp. Their 3-year partnership included competing at many local and recognized dressage shows and two-phases. They also spent a fair amount of time riding with friends through the woods and hay fields. Hooligan ignited Laura’s passion for training and competition. When she out grew Hooligan, she sold him to a family with 3 young girls who learned from him and loved him just as much as Laura did.

Syncro is the son of the decorated Trakehner stallion, Enrico Caruso and came into Laura’s life in 2003. Somewhat of a fairy tale story, Laura believes that their partnership was truly “meant to be”. They began the long climb up the levels together, which concluded at Grand Prix, 7 years after their partnership began. Syncro earned every score toward Laura’s USDF Bronze, Silver, and Gold Medals. Please see the biography section for some of Syncro’s accomplishments and awards.
