Currently the facility has four trainers crossing three riding disciplines: Hunter/Jumpers,
Dressage and Western. Trainer Karen Busch moved to Hunter Equestrian
Center in July of 2006. The facility’s owner, Michell Anne
Hunter, specializes in colt starting.
Karen Busch is the proprietor of Got-2-Fly
Farm, a Hunter/Jumper show barn. Karen specializes in training Hunters and Jumpers
but her training includes development of young horses, sale horse prospects, and
she trains students and horses of all ages. Most of Karen’s clientele is presently
showing on various circuits in Southern California. Another main goal of Karen’s
training is to teach proper horsemanship, balanced riding (using dressage techniques),
and includes tons of bending/suppling exercises. In addition, to round out the regular
jumping training, her client’s trail ride at least once or twice a week which helps
prevent arena boredom for both the students and the horses.
