Hi! I’m Alicia and I live in Talbott Tennessee. I am a Certified Method Ambassador for Clinton Anderson’s Downunder Horsemanship. I’ve been professionally training horses since 2018 but I have been involved with horses on a personal level since I was 3 years old. I’m so excited to be a part of The Heart of the Horse Trainers Challenge! My absolute favorite part about training is bringing people and horses together through a respectful and safe partnership! Outside of horses I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family and my dogs.
My name is Audrey Liddle. I am originally from California but moved to the beautiful state of Tennessee four years ago. I fell in love with horses at a young age and have been riding and showing horses since. I graduated as a certified Downunder Horsemanship Method Ambassador in 2021. My certification is one of my greatest achievements. Outside of my involvement with horses I enjoy hunting, cooking, and helping my parents with the family ranch. I am very excited to compete in the 2023 Heart of The Horse Trainers Challenge and can’t wait to get started!
My name is Benoit Tilhac. I'm a 25-year-old French equestrian who has been riding for 20 years. For most of that time I've ridden English disciplines like dressage, eventing, and hunter/jumpers. In the last five years I've also started riding western. While in the States, I've been learning reining and doing endurance races. I've also been training horses for many years, starting with my six personal horses and learning a lot with the riders I used to work with, such as professional jumpers Anouk Kort and Emma LeJault and dressage rider Stephanie Collomb. I love teaching my horses everything they know, but more than that, I love when my horses teach me

Though I’ve been a horse lover since I was a little girl, I was given the opportunity to work with a very untrusting horse my senior year of high school. Taking the time to bond and seeing her faith in me grow sparked a passion for training that has never gone out. As an Equine Science student at Morehead State University a good friend gave me the chance to work and train American Saddlebreds. I not only fell for the breed, but also for helping horses find jobs that they enjoy and in which they thrive. READ MORE
I've been colt starting since I was fourteen and rodeo'd my whole life. About two years ago I decided I wanted to know more. Since then I have worked with a couple of reining trainers and a cutting horse trainer to try and further my abilities. My goal is to learn what I can while I can! In addition to training my own and outside horses, I am often tapped to take on the most difficult training projects for Ms Horses. I ride about 12 horses a day, and wouldn't have it any other way!
