Growing up competing in Equitation, Hunters, Medals, and Jumpers, she found her love for riding and training at a young age. From numerous wins in Equitation championships to more recent year end Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Program High Points and Jumper Classic wins, Zoey has proven herself as a well rounded and accomplished trainer.
Z L Equestrian was founded originally for specialization in Off The Track Thoroughbred retraining and sales, as Zoey's true love resided in the breed itself. The program has expanded to all breeds, with the same basic principle, a solid foundation for results that last. With the application of her prior dressage training, Zoey focuses a reward versus reprimand based training system proven to build confidence in the production of young and/or green horses.
