Rebecca Rodriguez

Owner

​I have been working with horses for over 15 years, in the discipline of English and Western Pleasure. In 2009 I received my first horse Rosie and through the years, as Rosie got older I began to explore other Equestrian facilities, and began working with other trainers. I received schooling in Dressage, riding on level 3 horses, and working on jumping with highly athletic horses. In October 2015, Rosie passed away at the age of 22. Her loss was sudden, and her life will never be forgotten. Now I continue to work in the Equine Industry, having established Rebecca's Equine Service in 2016. I enjoy the ability to meet and care for a wide range of horses.

Danielle LeMieux

Horse Sitter, Exerciser & Groom

“Danielle has been working with horses for 15+ years and during her teenage years, obtained her first sport horse. With her little thoroughbred mare, she went to jumper shows in Orlando and to HSITP in Ocala. Eventually, the need for speed sizzled out and she shifted to lower level dressage. Danielle is fortunate to be involved with the dressage community in Orlando, constantly furthering her education. She currently owns a quarter horse that will be started on barrels and a thoroughbred who is a dressage prospect but has previously focused on horses with an array of behavioral issues. Bonus Fact: Danielle was a performer/trainer with domestics and exotics at SeaWorld

Alexandra Varveris

Horse Sitter, Exerciser & Groom

I began riding at the age of three in Naples, FL in the saddleseat, huntseat equitation, and dressage disciplines. Here I developed a strong seat and learned about proper equitation, balance, and engagement. At 13 I transitioned into the hunter jumper circuit and there my passion ignited. I have also been lucky enough to work with top natural horsemen and women, where I have learned the importance of proper connection, groundwork, and patience. A recent graduate from the University of Central Florida, I earned my degree in Business Administration and Management which I plan to utilize to further my understanding in my Equine career. I also am beginning the first steps in earning my Equine Myo-Manipulative and Craniosacral Therapy Certifications. My love for horses has introduced me to some of my best friends, and I look forward to working with and meeting new horses and fellow equine enthusiasts!

Howdy! I’ve been riding barrels, poles and gymkhana for over 12 years  I also rode with CGA California Gymkhana Association. Worked under a trainer for many years where I was able to help and work with  starting young green horses. I've also worked as a groom at hunter jumper barns and also started ranch sitting and exercising horses on my own while I lived in California. I love to continue my education in the equine world, with over 50 hours of schooling I more recently received my certification as an Equine Sports Massage Therapist in 2021.

Krista Harroff

Horse Sitter & Exerciser

Hi, I’m from Northern Indiana and grew up on a horse farm. I started Dressage lessons when I was 10 years old, and with my very first lesson my trainer said I had a natural talent. I entered a lot of shows in my younger years of riding and won grand champion, first place ribbons, and trophies. My highest accomplishments was with my horse Gallant. I started him from the bottom up and were receiving scores in the 70’s/80’s. I also worked with horses with specific problems, to help get them to respond and become better partners for their owners. Riding and training is my true passion. I recently moved to Florida in August of 2020 and look forward to being apart of the horse community here!

Zoe Eichorn

Trainer, Exerciser & Groom

Hello! I have been riding horses for 13 years now. I started off in western pleasure, then I did hunter/jumpers for a few years when I competed in IEA (Interscholastic Equestrian Association), I competed through first level dressage and qualified for Regional championships at the level. But I have been doing eventing for the past 5 years now. I qualified a few times and competed at the American Eventing Championships. I was a working student for a couple different trainers for 6 years all together as well. I was an assistant trainer at the first barn I became a working student at, and taught beginner lessons. I have been working with young horses under the supervision of my coach for a few years, and I now have my own 4yo ottb I am retraining! I am super excited to meet all your furry friends!

Suzette King

Horse Sitter & Exerciser

I started riding when I was a child, in my 20's I took lessons on professionally trained horses and decided to study horse management with the University of Florida Equine Sciences department where I received a specialty in horse management to my MA. Over the years many of my equestrian aspirations have come true. I owned and managed a 12 stall boarding stable, my deceased husband and I owned and managed together  65 acres with an 18 stall barn. I was Executive Director for the California based Andalusian breed registry, the Foundation for the Pure Spanish Horse. I worked with two outstanding Thoroughbred training centers in Ocala one as the general manager and one as the sales assistant. Both of these farms had Breeders Cup entries and winners while I was with them. I have had the honor to clinic and lesson with many fine regional instructors, also with Dorita Konyot, with a member of the US Olympic team and a master at the Spanish Riding School. I am now enjoying learning the current best practices in show Barn horse keeping and the wonderful new people I am meeting at Rebecca's equestrian services.

Mallory Howell

Horse Sitter & Exerciser

I am an eighth generation Floridian and fortunate to have grown up in a family of equestrians and avid outdoorsmen. My passion for horses began before I could walk, astride a quarter horse with one of my parents on our Central Florida cattle ranch. I continued my equestrian pursuits, which span many different disciplines from Western Pleasure, Eventing, Obstacle Competitions, Hunters to Jumpers. With a B.A. in Psychology and equine therapy volunteer, I have seen firsthand the powerful positive impact horses can have on all human beings, particularly those with special needs. Since my early years on the ranch and more than 20 years of showing diverse equestrian disciplines, I have gained the valuable skills and knowledge needed for the care and maintenance of horses.

Cathy Gorg

Horse Sitter & Exerciser

I was born and raised in North Central PA, at the age of 20 I owned a small farm and bought my first horse - an appy mare soon to foal. She gave me a beautiful little solid liver chestnut filly. It was that moment I knew my dream and passion had come true. I've had the pleasure of owning and raising eight foals over the years. Keeping a chosen few and raising the others to the age of two. Doing all the socializing and ground work to get them ready for their next chapter with a special personally picked home. After moving to Florida I was giving the opportunity to work as a groom at local a horse resort and show venue. Where I learned to harness and drive a carriage as well as learning the ins and outs of the hunter jumpers, Dressage, Cross Country and marathon carriage competitions. All the while idolizing Lynn Palm.

Alyssa Horwitz

Horse Sitter 

Hi! I am so happy to have joined this team, I have loved horses and animals in general for as long as I can remember. Being from Tampa, FL it was hard to find opportunities to be around and learn about horses. I grew up going to horse camps and would use any excuse or take any opportunity I could to be around horses. In 7th grade I started volunteering at nonprofit rescues and instantly fell in love. I have been with a couple non profits since then and have continued to learn so much about animals. I am so excited to be able to apply what I know, and learn, by taking care of your animals, and from coworkers on the team!

Alexandra Meza

Horse Sitter

​Alexandra's love and passion for animals started ever since she was a little girl. Rescuing stray dogs from the streets or buying food for stray cats was a natural choice for her. When she moved to United States her first job was at a farm in Geneva, where she met three gorgeous horses.  She fed them, cleaned their stalls, and learned about their unique behaviors and personalities. Through all these years she started to work at different pet hospitals where she also learned about veterinary medicine, and now she has great experience in the medical care of dogs and cats. For Alexandra there is no greater gift than the love of a pet, and even though she has a degree in the film & video field, her passion to work with animals never stopped - only continues to grow up. Each pet she meets, becomes her new best friend, and she really enjoys sharing and learn about their stories and able to meet their owners as well.
