Saddle Horse Report Welcomes Britni Olsen






Saddle Horse Report is pleased to welcome their newest member of the team, Britni Olsen. Britni lives in the Dallas-Forth Worth area and has a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Production from Tarleton State University. She grew up riding, and started showing Morgans when she was ten. “I have ridden with some of the greatest horse trainers along the way,” said Olsen. “My dad bought me my first Morgan when I was twelve, then the domino effect has happened since. I currently have one horse in training at Grove Pointe, as well as one weanling and five retired horses, including my first Morgan, at our family farm.”

In college Olsen wrote for the Morgan Connection for a little extra money while she trained and showed her own horses. After graduating, she became the assistant trainer at Hallmark Farms with Susan Morey. “Growing up I always wanted to be a horse trainer, so I got to live out my childhood dream and worked for Hallmark for four years.”

Olsen continued to have an interest in working for a magazine. Earlier this year she became a regional correspondent for Saddle Horse Report. “I was living the dream, going to horse shows, watching, writing, and selling advertisements. I loved it! Now to be hired on to the team full-time, is like a dream come true--an opportunity to continue to work in an industry for which I have a true passion. I said I got to live out my childhood dream of being a horse trainer, and now I am living my adulthood dream of making a career out of working for a horse magazine.”? “We are so proud to have Britni join our talented team,” said Publisher Christy Womack. “She is a vibrant young professional and her passion for all things horses and her knowledge of the Morgan breed are great additions for us. We look forward to watching her grow in her position.”
