Bridget Finnerty

Hunt Seat Coach

Department: Equestrian


Bridget is a recent Mount Holyoke College graduate who developed a passion for team riding thanks to her time as a four-year national equitation team rider and two-year Captain.  She capped her college equitation career by claiming the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association Individual Reserve National Champion honors in both 2016 and 2017, as well as the Reserve National Championship team title in 2016.  She has ridden and worked for some of the prominent names in the horse industry, including Karen Healey, Stacia Madden, and Julie Winkle, to develop herself as a rider and to learn to create her own successful coaching style.  She now loves seeing young and dedicated riders find success in the show ring from creating a positive and productive learning environment in the ring at school.
