Danni's Bio


Danni, an avid FEI dressage rider, owns and operates Pony Island Stable in Kennett Square, PA, where she teaches, trains and sells horses.  Danni competes clients’ horses and sale horses in all levels of dressage as well as low level combined training, hunters and jumpers.  She also enjoys competing in Musical Freestyles, Pas de deux and Quadrilles. She is a graduate member of the Brandywine Hounds Pony Club.  Danni has earned her USDF Bronze and Silver medals and already has two scores towards her Gold Medal.  Danni enjoys helping riders develop their horses through judging.  She is an “L” graduate with distinction and recently became a USEF “r” dressage judge, she hopes to continue to go on to get her “R”.  Danni has been a member of the DVCTA Board for three terms and served as an officer and is now, currently the President of The Delaware Valley Combined Training Association (DVCTA.org)

She would not have achieved all these things without the help of some great trainers and coaches.  A very special thanks to her current trainers Becky Langwost-Barlow, Chris Hickey, Lori Jakabouskas, Melissa Morrill and Janice Dugan.  These professionals have also helped her to become and overall good horseman as well as a rider and a trainer.  In addition she has had a lot of guidance from many others, to name a few Susie Buchanan, Mary Warner Brown, Missy Ranshousen, Beth Wicas, Marilyn Heath, Todd Flettrich and Bonnie Mosser. Of course none of these accomplishments would have been possible without the support of her family and friends.

Simply put, our horses get seen, get noticed, judged and do well in competition! We are a very active stable, and you will get noticed as well.
