"I love sharing my passion for riding with my students and seeing their growth"
Owner & Trainer
Erin learned her love for Horses and the Equestrian sport at a very young age. She started riding at the age of 5 where her passion blossomed. She grew up riding in Alpharetta and showing competitively on local and rated circuits.
Erin spent the early part of her twenties managing a show barn and assisted in the training of young riders and horses. After her daughter was born in 2005, she started her career in the insurance industry. After ten years of the corporate world, Erin decided she wanted to finally live out her dream of owning her own facility to teach riders and train horses.
So she founded White Anchor Equestrian in 2017 - where the barn is her favorite place to be and she could grow her vision of providing a safe and family oriented platform for all levels to grow and excel in their sport, while also promoting the advancement of both horse and rider to their next level through the implementation of quality training.
