Melissa Hammond
Riding before she could walk, Melissa started her first training project at age 11. Kicking butt in the show ring, as a team they never placed lower than Reserve at an event. Sadly, due to laminitis issues, Sassy was retired early.  Preferring to start horses aimed toward western disciplines and very talented at finishing and polishing  both riders and horses for the western show ring, Melissa has made her mark in the area. Currently, she is working with her APHA gelding 'Whiskey' under saddle and keeping busy with various other training projects. Melissa is a great instructor and trainer as well as having a great passion for driving our team of spotted drafts for wagon rides and weddings.
