Meet a few members of our team

Susan Cox

Member Rep

After being involved with Pony Club as a child for many years, I was lucky enough to find myself back with horses as an adult. Coming from a hunter/jumper background, dressage is definitely a learning experience for me! One of the best parts is getting to enjoy riding with my two daughters and watching their love of horses develop. Currently, we own Sam, an ex-barrel racing Quarter Horse who is now acquiring dressage skills, and our recent addition, Castiel, an Oldenburg who is teaching us!

Danielle has a long family history involving horses and is passionate when it comes to dressage. Her family ran a successful Angus cattle import business which was accompanied with training, breeding, and raising horses. Danielle and her Hanoverian mare Vanilla Sky are active in the community and started showing in the 2015-2016 season at Introductory Level, they are currently schooling at Training Level. Vanilla came to Danielle from a longtime family friend after a successful jumping career.

Being horse crazy & addicted since the age of 5, I have been trying to become a better rider and make my horses better horses since then. Dressage has been my passion for the last 15 years ...especially when riding with music. Operating a boarding facility in Buckingham / Fort Myers and being Vice President for SWFDA this season at the same time is a big but challenging task for me. I love to work with junior/young riders and kids and teach them the basic understanding of dressage as well as progressing ambitious adult riders to become better partners for their equine mounts. The well-being of the horse is always my main concern.
