Erin Rose – Head Groom
Erin first began her experience with horse care in Pony Club in Pennsylvania around 8 years old and thankfully, since that age, horses have remained in her life through several international moves, university and beyond! Accompanying her on this journey is her Irish Sport Horse, Emerald Traveller, who she has owned for 16 years. She competed Emerald through the Preliminary level in high school and enjoyed small stints as a working student for Lauren and David O’Brien and other professionals where she gained exposure to the structure of a high performance Eventing barn. She attended the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill where she received a bachelors in Psychology and began working after graduation for a non-profit which provided living and vocational support services for adults with developmental disabilities and Autism. It wasn’t until spectating at Rolex in 2014 that she felt inspired to reconnect with her love for the sport and try her hand at grooming for a top level rider. Erin joined the team in September of 2014 and hasn’t looked back! She looks forward to taking care of Jennie’s top horses in this exciting season and learning as much about the industry and horse care along the way.
