Carlos Soriano

Although he has always had a passion for horses, Carlos Soriano’s work in the equestrian industry began by chance. After losing his job, he attended a horse show with a friend. Inspired by the opportunity to care for horses, he found a new career which has served him and the horses well for the past 29 years.

In 2015 Carlos was honored when Boss, owned by Laura Wasserman and shown by John French, was presented with Equis Boutique’s “Best Presented Model Horse Honors” at the Capital Challenge Horse Show.

Trent McGee

Trent’s love for horses started at the age of 7 when he began taking lessons at the Traditional Equitation School (Los Angeles Equestrian Center). His first instructor, Caitlin Steimle, recognizing his love for both horses and competition, suggested that Trent check out a Grand Prix competition.

Trent has been laser-focused ever since, currently tackling the Grand Prix level with his partner, the talented Dutch Warmblood, Boucherom. Trent and Boucherom won their first Grand Prix in 2020, and also helped to secure the bronze medal for Zone 10 in the 2020 Prix des States.

At the age of 16, Archie provided Trent with a working student position at Brookway Stables, and years later Trent now serves as an assistant. Trent has also partnered with West Palms Events, who awarded him with the Michael Nyuis Scholarship for three consecutive years. “I am extremely grateful and blessed with the opportunities that have been given to me by Archie and so many others. I am excited to continue to learn under Archie, a master horseman, and look for ways to give back to this amazing sport.”

Stirling Kincannon

Stirling’s mom Nancy owned a tack shop and is also an avid horsewoman, so it was no surprise that Stirling’s love of horses began at a very early age. With her mother’s help, she grew up riding project ponies, showing in the pony hunter divisions and equitation at the local horse shows in North Texas. When Stirling was ready to take on the jumper ring, Nancy made a call to Mike McCormick who gave her the opportunity to become a working student. As a junior, Stirling went on to compete in her first Grand Prix at the age of 16, represented Zone 7 at Prix de States, and was Zone 7 junior jumper champion 3 years in a row.

Upon aging out of the Junior divisions, Stirling turned professional and continued to work for MTM farm before eventually starting her own business. She was fortunate enough to spend multiple summers with her clients competing in Southern California, which is where she first became more familiar with Archie’s program and Brookway Stables.

When she heard Archie was looking for an additional assistant, Stirling was thrilled at the opportunity to join Archie’s team. “I have always admired Archie’s ability to produce both winning horses and winning riders. I could not be more excited to be a part of the Brookway Stables team, and continue learning from such a well respected horseman.”
