grew up on a horse farm in Plymouth, Wisconsin under the teaching of her mother, Kelly Mahloch of Sundance Farm. With a Nationally certified instructor as her guide, she and her sister had quite a jump start to the equine world and became very involved in the 4-H Horse Project, and both the Local and State level for Hunt Seat and Western. She began her addiction for Eventing at age 13 and successfully trained her first horse to the Preliminary Level by age 19.
Whitney is a 2012 graduate, of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods College, where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Equine Business Management.
While attending Saint Mary-of-the-Wood, she participated on the Hunt Seat and Jumping Team, as well as the Western and Reining Intercollegiate Teams. She also qualified and placed at Nationals, as an individual, all four years, giving her excellent & well rounded experience.
After college Whitney accepted an Assistant Trainer and Rider position, in Virginia, working side by side with a past Olympian. She had the opportunity to winter in Aiken, South Carolina. Getting the taste of a warmer winter than her home in Wisconsin, she decided to take a job in Florida the following winter, taking advantage of the chance to continue serious training throughout the winter months.
