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.”
