Chloe has been horseback riding for the majority of her life. From humble beginnings in Saint-Lazare, Chloe grew as a rider and horsewoman under the watchful eyes of Christian and Laurence Kieffer out of Kieffer Stables. Chloe competed locally on regional circuits in both the equitations and the jumpers. Since then, she has gone on to win numerous classes with her OTTB mare, Pink Lily, whom she trained herself. She has attended clinics with countless big name riders including Francois Lamontagne and Hyde Moffat.
As a young professional, Chloe has created a name for herself as a coach through her gentle and nurturing coaching style. She aims to teach the love of horses to all that she meets, sharing her passion with others both in and out of the saddle. As a trainer, Chloe takes the same approach with her horses, training young horses and restarting thoroughbreds into their new careers.
For the upcoming season, Chloe looks forward to her bringing her newest partner, Kamaria, into the jumper ring as well as showing off Vintage Oasis’ beautiful horses in the hunters and jumpers.
