Kaitlyne Wadman, Owner & Operator
Kaitlyne Wadman has been involved in the horse industry her entire life. Her younger years were spent traveling throughout the country with her parent’s team roping on various circuits. At age 5 Kaitlyne and her mother traveled to the All American Quarter Horse Congress and it was there where her dream of showing on the AQHA circuit came to life. The next year Kaitlyne returned to the Congress aboard TP Charlie’s Angel where she competed in the Small Frye Walk-trot division.
As a youth Kaitlyne experienced success with trainers like Bill Buckley and Liz Haynes. Her career went into over drive when she began training with Gretchen Mathes and Gino Spagnolia of Powder Brook Farm. She and her equine partner “Some Like it Shady” also know as Stanley amassed countless awards to include:
- Fifth place Hunt Seat Equitation 2009 AQHYA World Show
- Finalist in Halter AQHYA World Show
- AQHA Youth Superior Hunter under Saddle
- AQHA Youth Superior Equitation
- AQHA Youth Superior Halter
- MASSQHA High Point Youth 2005 to 2010
- AQHA Youth Supreme Champion
- Region 6 High Point All Around Youth and All Around Open Division
- Numerous Top Ten finishes at the All American Quarter Horse Congress
- 37 Youth All Around Championships
Kaitlyne also was the first ever Massachusetts Teenager to be chosen to compete on the United States AQHA Youth World Cup Team. As a leadership member of the team Kaitlyne spent 10 days in Oklahoma competing against teams from 17 different countries as well as participating in seminars and clinics. Her leadership skills were also put to work as the acting Massachusetts Youth Club President from 2005-2009.
Kaitlyne’s talent and dedication allow her to offer many areas of expertise to people of all ages and skill levels. Her training methods and philosophies are a combination of her own style of training and the training methods of those trainers she has worked with. Those trainers include Peter Kyle, from whom Kaitlyne has learned and competed successfully in the reining pen, Chris Cox, Bruce Vickery and Josh Lyons. She combines her methods with these trainers that she admires and builds a plan for each individual horse and rider that will work for them.
