Champion Your Own Success

Empowering equestrians of all levels to believe in their abilities through equestrian goal setting.

Who Are We?

Who is Ride For Success?

Ride For Success is a woman and equestrian owned/founded business based on a passion for health, wellness and horses. Our goal is to inspire equestrians to challenge their personal best no matter their riding level or discipline.

As fellow equestrians, we understand the long hours and financial commitment required to pursue our passion. We aim to be the support system that every equestrian needs, regardless of means or type of riding.

Ride For Success is a goal-setting program whereby equestrian enthusiasts can  participate in various riding and fitness challenges. Our community is supportive, inclusive and motivated by our combined success.

We are here to support and share in your challenge journey. Although one of our beautiful ribbons is a great reward, the most significant reward is achieving your personal best.

Why Participate?

Our Core Values

We set Goal-Driven Riding Challenges.

We set goal driven challenges that any rider or handler can participate in.  We also promote goal setting for a healthy lifestyle through our athlete challenges.  So even if your horse is down or you’re in between mounts you can stay on track with your athletic and equestrian dreams.


Our vision is that of a global equestrian community that provides positive support to their fellow athletes who are striving to reach their personal riding and workout goals.


Ride For Success is creating a global community that strives to challenge and incentivize goal setting for equestrians of all disciplines along with promoting ad rewarding a healthy active lifestyle.

Self-care is something that has always been important but has only recently been popularized. Taking time for yourself helps you recharge and reduces stress. Doing this through activity (especially with horses) is the best thing ever!



Participate alongside a group of friends so you can all feel the benefits of being active. People who ride together thrive together!

Your Chariot Awaits

The Only Limits Are Your Own

Challenging your limits is essential for personal growth and development. When you step out of your comfort zone and push yourself to go beyond what you think is possible, you not only gain new skills and abilities but also build confidence and resilience. This is especially important in equestrian sport.

Cat has taught many athletes and understands the value of persistence and perseverance first hand. Ride For Success challenges are designed to be achievable so you can feel a sense of accomplishment without getting hung up on your limits.
