Augusta Lord is a USDF Bronze medalist currently based out of Amherst, Massachusetts. She has competed successfully in several disciplines, including hunter/jumpers, equitation, show jumping, dressage, and gymkhana. After several years of competing her self-trained thoroughbred, Augusta relocated to Wellington, Florida to train under Olympic medalist and dressage legend Dottie Morkis. 
While in Wellington, Augusta was a working student for Endel Ots and Caroline Roffman and groomed for USDF President George Williams at Betsy Juliano’s Havensafe Farm. Since then she has moved back to Massachusetts and trained with Sharon McCusker, Bill Warren, and Bill McMullin. She earned her USDF Bronze medal on Sovangs Lima in 2014, placing first in every class they entered with the exception of two second place finishes.
Currently Augusta trains full time with Grand Prix rider Brenna Kucinski on Solstice, a Holsteiner gelding owned by top U.S. dressage breeder Broadfields 121. She is finishing her final semester at University of Masschusetts, Amherst and is a licensed instructor teaching lower level dressage to a variety of students as well as a college equitation course at University of Massachusetts.. Augusta has a keen eye for good horse and rider partnerships and brings a lot of natural talent to the table in riding and teaching.
