MEET THE STAFF
Macy founded Cornerstone Equestrian in 2010 and acts as the owner and head trainer. She teaches lessons, provides training rides at home, and trains clients at horse shows.
After nine years as an assistant trainer for Brad Spragg and The Atlanta Hunt Club, Macy decided to use the knowledge, experience, and contacts she had gained to start her own business. Macy has had students qualify for and successfully compete at all the major indoor finals horse shows, as well as coached a national championship IEA team. She volunteers her time on the MTHJA board, serving as president for the past several years.

Ricardo comes from a family of skilled and caring horsemen. He has years of experience show grooming for different barns and has been an integral part of the team at Cornerstone for many years.
Kelly provides the majority of our training rides both at home and at horse shows, as well as competes all of our clients' horses in the professional divisions during the week.
Kelly brings a wealth of riding and horse management experience to our team after decades of experience working for top trainers across the country. In addition to countless hunter derby wins, Kelly has competed and placed at every major indoor finals horse show in the country.
Caroline manages the school lesson program, helps with training rides at home and at shows, and helps manage the business end of the operation.
A former Cornerstone client and working student herself, Caroline spent her college years at Vanderbilt learning the "in's & out's" of the horse business and honing her skills under the guidance of Macy and Kelly. In addition to summers spent working for trainers such as Daniel Geitner and Don Stewart, Caroline brings years of horsemanship-centered experience in Pony Club, interscholastic and intercollegiate teams, and various lesson programs to her position.
