Meet the Staff: Kristin

Part of what makes The Horse of Course great is the diverse and hard working staff. We’re pleased to introduce them to you through our “Meet The Staff” series! This week, meet our customer service team member Kristin M.

Describe what you do at The Horse of Course.
I help with orders, answer the phone, clean the store, prep the local mobile unit for horse shows, and most importantly, I help you!

What’s your history with the equestrian world? Do you have horses or ride?
Being a western rider and working in the english world is very interesting! I have learned so much working here and visiting with customers when they come in or call. I have a Heinz 57 horse named Smoke. We have a long history together with many ribbons and winnings. Now that he’s older, we just trail ride. I can tell you he loves to drink cranberry juice from my glass, which becomes his glass after that! He is such a silly boy.

What is your favorite product from The Horse of Course?
My favorite product would have to be some of the new apparel from Kerrits and Horze that we just got in! It’s exhilarating to see the new designs they’ve come up with!

Part of what makes The Horse of Course great is the diverse and hard working staff. We’re pleased to introduce them to you through our “Meet The Staff” series! This week, meet our website and marketing manager, Stephanie Peck.

Describe what you do at The Horse of Course.
I’m responsible for keeping the website up-to-date with the latest products and make sure everything is running smoothly so customers can place orders online; I run the store’s social media accounts, too! I also produce ads to run in magazines, on equestrian websites, and in show programs. I handle local donation and sponsorship requests, and can often be found with the local mobile unit at shows. I wear many hats, but I enjoy staying busy!

Do you have horses?
Yes, I have two Thoroughbreds: a mare named Gina and a gelding named Moe.

What discipline do you ride?
I primarily compete in three day eventing. I’m on the board of Green Country Dressage, so you can find me at a lot of dressage schooling shows, too. I started foxhunting on Gina last year, which has been very fun. I’ve also played polo and ridden show hunters.

What’s your favorite product?
This is a difficult question for me, because I love so many things! It’s probably a toss-up between the Horze anti-slip gel pad and Lucky Braids dry wash/whitener spray. The gel pad is a must-have for hunting or cross country; it does a fantastic job of keeping my saddle in place. The Lucky Braids dry wash is very easy to use and keeps both horses looking great without a lot of effort!
