Robin has a history in the Paso Fino breed that dates back over 40 years, and she has made her mark in the equine world as a professional Paso Fino Trainer and an active member of PFHA. She is a life member and was a member of the preceding organizations, PFOBA and APF. In 2005 and again in 2007, Robin was elected President of PFHA. Previous to that, she was President and Board Delegate for the North Florida (formerly Everglades) PFHA Region. She has also served on numerous national committees including the Executive, Judges and Stewards, Professional Trainers/Horsemen, Youth Rules, and Planning Committees. Robin is a Senior Certified Judge and has held a judge’s card since 1973.
She is the youngest person to have received her judge’s card at the age of 17 and may currently be the longest continuously standing judge in the breed. She is also a USEF recorded judge.
In the show ring, Robin has earned over 150 Grand National, Reserve Grand National, and National Championships, and she is one of only a handful of members who have shown in every PFHA Grand National Championship Show, totaling 39, as of 2011. In 1989, Robin was voted by her peers to receive the second Paso Fino Trainer of the Year Award. Possibly, though her most prestigious award to date was being named one of seven USA-E Equestrians of Honor in 2002 receiving the C.J. “June” Cronan trophy.
Our Fall Clinic, which is open to the public, is held in late October at our farm. Individual time can be provided by appointment at a mutually agreed upon time. Come and experience why Robin’s techniques provide you with an athlete that will give you a partner for life.
