Kingsmeade has been looking for a new assistant trainer for several months. Sadly, Charlotte Ray has moved back to Orlando to be with her son Tristan who is just going into the sixth grade. It’s a big step for him and we all agreed it was the right thing for Charlotte. It wasn’t easy though, we were all family and will miss her so much.


Caroline Agnew rode with us for four years as a junior rider doing the Big Eq and Junior Hunters. After she finished her junior year, she was off to the University of South Carolina for a year and then to Eckerd College.

She still has her retired horse Maldek at Kingsmeade and came to see him at lunch one day. It was so good to see her! That night Clair and I talked and decided to see if she might be interested in the position. She was a really good rider and has a great, out going personality and is always smiling. She loves the horses and is really good with them.

She said yes and we couldn’t be happier!
