Annie Sweet

Biography

Annie has been training dressage professionally for 15 years. She started out jumping on her Chincoteaugue pony at 10 years old before transitioning fully to dressage later on. She has been working at Sage Creek since its doors were opened in 2005. After educating herself under Jim and Donnette Hicks, she developed an appreciation for natural horsemanship and tries to incorporate it into her dressage training as much as possible. Her unusual ability to work with all breeds no matter what size, build, or even sex, has earned her the highest of respect among her peers. She loves helping her students develop a relationship with their horses. She also has a passion for riding in the mountains and has been known to “cowgirl it up” from time to time!

Achievements

Annie has won multiple USDF year-end championships on non-traditional breeds with median scores in the 70’s, including two Arabians, a Gypsy Vanner and a wild-born Mustang. She earned her USDF Bronze Medal on an Appendix QH. Her students have also won many year-end awards and national championships.
