Newcastle, CA Horse Trainer
Lauren LoPiccolo first got her start in Pony Club at the age of nine. Lauren worked with Sarah Ballou, Grand Prix Jumper, at Emigrant Springs Ranch in Grass Valley, CA. She competed five years on the Hunter/Jumper Circuit including the Spruce Meadows International Horse Show in Calgary, Canada at the age of 17. Lauren then went on to compete for the Intercollegiate Equestrian Team at the California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, CA. While working towards her Agricultural Business Degree, Lauren began competing more heavily in Three Day Eventing under the direction of Gina Miles, a Silver Medallist in the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Upon graduating from college, Lauren received the highest rating in Pony Club, the A-Rating. Lauren continues to be heavily involved in Pony Club as an examiner for ratings, lessons, and teaching at camps. She has continued her coaching education by completing the ICP training/workshops and looks forward to receiving the certification. On top of coaching and training, Lauren is riding and competing her own horse to one day achieve her goal to compete at the Rolex 4 Star Three Day event in Lexington, Kentucky!
Lauren has over 10 years of teaching experience as well as expertise in training and selling horses. She is now training at Raintree Ranch Equestrian Center in Newcastle, CA. She specializes in training and coaching for Three Day Eventing, Dressage, and Hunter/Jumpers. All levels of horses and riders welcome!
“I feel it is very important that both horse and rider develop confidence through a upbeat and positive environment in order to perform to the best of their ability.”
