Folly Farm Show Stables Instructors
Molly joins the Folly Farm training staff after riding and competing for years with Amy and Brittney as her instructors. Molly's bright smile and patience led us to ask her to begin to teach our youngest students in our Tiny Trotter program. Molly also runs our summer programming.
Brittney began riding at age 8 and has made horses a major part of her life ever since. She competed in both Hunters and Equitation as a junior and attended UConn where she rode on the Hunt Seat and Western Teams. She also completed instructor training in English, Western and Dressage disciplines. Brittney has been working with Amy since 2013, and together they have build a very successful riding school and IEA program. Brittney is the Head of our Riding School and coaches both Folly's Middle School and High School IEA teams. In 2019 she was named the CHJA High Point Co-Trainer.
