Whitney Mahloch grew up on a horse farm in Plymouth, Wisconsin under the teaching of her mother, Kelly Mahloch of Sundance Farm. With a Nationally certified instructor as her guide, she and her sister had quite a jump start to the equine world and became very involved in the 4-H horse project and both the local and State level for Hunt Seat and Western. She began her addiction for Eventing at age 13 and successfully trained her first horse to the Preliminary level by 19.
After High School she attended Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College where she participated on the Hunt Seat and Jumping team as well as the Western and Reining Intercollegiate teams. She qualified and placed at Nationals as an individual all four years and is very well rounded because of it. In 2012 she graduated from Saint Mary’s with a Bachelor’s degree in Equine Business Management, and soon after took a working student position in Maryland. A year later she accepted an assistant trainer and rider position in Virginia with a past Olympian and got the chance to winter in Aiken, South Carolina. Getting the taste of a warmer winter than home, she decided to take a job in Florida the following winter so that she may continue serious training throughout the winter. Over the past 10 years Whitney has trained her current horse from a gangly 3 year old off the track to an FEI CCI*** Event horse and Prix St. Georges Dressage horse.
Now residing at Tradewinds Farm, she is currently working with International CCI**** rider Missy Ransehousen for Eventing, Chuck Waters for Show Jumping and Large R USDF Dressage Judge, Judy Downer. At Tradewinds she manages the farm while also starting her own Whitmore Equestrian training and instructing business. Whitney has experience teaching and can help you reach your goals through consistent and proven practices. She will teach you the correct and efficient manner in which to work with your horse to have them performing at their best. She has been teaching and training for years and continues to further her knowledge by riding and training with those of even more experience that she can use and pass onto her students.
Some of her mentors include Lois Heyerdahl, Kelly Mahloch, Chrissy Hollnagel, Dorothy Crowell, Lillian Heard, William Coleman III, Allison Brock, Silvio Mazzoni, Chuck Waters, Missy Ransehousen and John Holling. She has ridden in clinics with Boyd Martin, Silva Martin, David O’Connor, Karen O’Connor, Heidi White and George Morris.
