Emily Brollier Curtis

Owner, Head Trainer 
USDF Gold Medalist

Born in Steamboat Springs, CO and raised in Wichita, KS, Emily started her riding career before she could walk, accompanying her parents on pack trips in the Rocky Mountains. Emily began showing at age 7 in the Hunter/Jumper ring, but soon felt drawn to the thrill of eventing. Through eventing, she developed a passion for dressage. In 2001, Emily began training with USA Dressage Idol winner, Philesha Chandler. 


In 2004, at the age of 14, Emily purchased 3 year old Miramonte, an unbroken warmblood mare, whom she started under saddle. Since then they have worked in tandem to realize many accomplishments including the USDF Bronze, Silver and Gold Medals.  


In addition to Miramonte, Emily has carefully developed over 15 horses to the FEI levels, including Dancer, a beautiful 18hh chestnut KWPN gelding (pictured) currently showing Grand Prix. Emily is known for her ability to work with both young and difficult horses and especially has a talent for restarting Thoroughbreds off track and placing them into new careers. Emily is also a graduate of the University of Kentucky with a BS in Equine Management and Science and a minor in Agricultural Economics. Emily plans to continuously study and pursue the art of dressage and will do so from her new facility in the heart of the Bluegrass.

Meghan Riviello

Assistant Trainer / Sales Manager
USDF Silver Medalist

Meghan moved to Lexington to attend The University of Kentucky where she graduated in 2018 with a BS in Equine Science and Management and a minor is Agricultural Economics. Since then, Meghan has been Emily's "right hand man", learning the art of dressage while helping Emily run a successful business.


Meghan is an eventer turned dressage queen and with Emily's coaching, earned her USDF Bronze Medal in 2017 aboard Emily's personal KWPN gelding, Dancer. Meghan earned her USDF Silver Medal in 2019 with the help of the one and only Miramonte! 

Meghan's 2020 goals are to finish her USDF Gold Medal by achieving her last two scores on Miramonte, who is still happily showing Grand Prix at 20+ years of age.

Samantha Fogg

Assistant Trainer
USDF Bronze Medalist

Sam is an extremely talented young rider who started her career in the eventing world. For 3 consecutive years, she and her OTTB mount, Nacona qualified for American Eventing Championships at the Preliminary level and in 2018 they were selected to represent the Area 8 Young Riders Preliminary Team.

In the relatively short amount of time Sam has been part of the Miramonte program, she is rapidly developing her inner dressage diva. In 2020, Sam has already earned her USDF Bronze Medal and made progress towards silver. Her Prelim event horse, Narcona, is currently showing USDF 2nd level and doing fantastic!

Sam's new goal for 2020 is to complete the remainder of her USDF Silver Medal.
