Emma Clark started her riding experience at age 11. Knowing that the family finances could not bring her into the world of the horse industry, Emma pursued the opportunity to be a working student to follow her passion. Emma has rapidly worked her way up the ladder. In 2008 Emma teamed up with Wendy to finish her equitation mount, Georgio. “Emma has been with Brownlee Equestrian since day one and is the hardest working girl I know” says trainer Wendy Brownlee. Emma was a working student five days a week for five years while finishing a degree in Animal Science at the University of Nevada. Emma’s choice to work with Brownlee Equestrian enabled her to develop her gift for teaching lessons and finishing horses.
