Riding School Trainer Brittany Sayre

Brittany has been riding since the age of 7, and 23 years later still has the heart and soul to ride and teach. Brittany and her husband are proud parents of 3 children and love their dogs and cats.

Born in Fort Worth and raised in Grapevine, she started her horse career at Wagon Wheel Ranch in Grapevine under Kimberly Brunson. Brittany started at the bottom grooming horses, taking lessons and worked her way up to trainer and rider on the Kim Brunson Equestrian Team (KBET). She has successfully competed in both Hunter and Jumper in the NTHJC, IAHA and in Pony Finals.

Brittany has an extensive 12-year background in both large and small animal medicine. She worked with a small animal vet for 12 years and her uncle is a large animal vet. She spent her summers learning everything she could about equine health at her uncle’s vet clinic.

She loves to teach beginners Hunter/Jumper and watch students grow and learn to be equestrians and have fun all the while learning, and pushing themselves and their horses to be better teams. Her positive “can do” attitude and positive training reinforcement has helped many students to succeed. Several of her students are currently showing in local and rated circuits on horses that Brittany has bought and trained. Her personal quote is “There is no perfection in being an equestrian” meaning that no matter what, every day there is something both a horse and rider can learn at every ride. She encourages students to try hard, ask questions and educate themselves on what their end goals will be. Brittany enjoys taking students to shows, so they can better themselves and horses. She believes very much in horsemanship and hard work.

Brittany has currently been an IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association) coach for the last 2 years. This program offers kids grades 6-12 a showing experience in what would be a college equestrian environment.
