Patty is the owner, main instructor and trainer at Longview Stables.
Patty was born horse crazy in a family that had no history with
horses. Patty began taking riding lessons from a lady name Nelly,
who had spent her riding career with American saddlebred horses.
This was where Patty first learned of the breed. Her father bought
her her first horse which lead her to joining the Colorado Caballero
Saddle Club where she began competing in speed events. Along with
Patty Western lessons from Quarter Horse trainers she also took
Hunter Jumper lessons.Then, Patty rode a 5-gaited American Saddlebred,
and was hooked. Since riding that American Saddlebred, she took
a change of pace in the horse world. She was enthrawled with saddle
seat riding and this fancy going, powerful breed of horse. Patty
then decided that this was where her heart lied. She opened Longview
Stables in 1978, where she offered riding lessons, boarding and
training. Her background in the other styles of riding helped to
increase her expertise in Saddle Seat. She has trained World Champion
and Reserve World Champion Riders and Show Horses.
Kayla is an instructor and assistant trainer at Longview Stables.
Kayla was in her first horse show when she was 3 years old. Patty
had her in the Saddle from the moment she was born. Patty's dedication
towards her daughters riding career paid off, when Kayla made her
1st World's Champion Victory pass in Louisiville, Kentucky. Kayla
graduated from Colorado State University after studying abroad in
Italy. She couldn't wait to get home, back to her passion, the horses.
Kayla is currently the Chapter Chairperson for UPHA Chapter 19,
devoted to promoting the American Saddlebred while Uniting Professional
Daughter Team could not be more passionate about what they do; let
them help you on your journey to Saddle Up and Follow your Dreams!
