Emma Van Riper

A career as a trainer seemed like the obvious choice for Emma, an active junior rider, but after realizing the risk involved with that role, she shifted her focus to administration within the horse industry. While attending American Public University for a Bachelor’s in Sports Management with a minor in Marketing, she has worked in A.R. at Florida’s biggest oil firm and in office management at a large-scale riding school. In her free time, she enjoys competing with her horse Castiel, training her dog Juggy in agility, and watching “so bad it’s good” movies. Emma’s passion for horses and experience within a professional setting made her a great candidate to join our A.R. department.
