Growing up, Erica dedicated herself to the equestrian sport and was a team player and role model at a young age. Erica was an active member of Burlington County 4-H and competed in both county and state horse shows in English Equitation and Hunters.Erica was awarded Reserve Champion Pony Jumper for Zone 2 by the United States Equestrian Federation (formerly AHSA). She has also enjoyed participating in hunter paces and foxhunts.
Presently, Erica competes in 3-Day Eventing, Dressage, Hunters, and Show Jumpers. She most recently competed at the Winter Equestrian Festival in Wellington, Florida in February 2016 in Show Jumpers. She is thorough in her training of young horses, gradually bringing them up the levels of the discipline that suits them best. She sometimes works with problem horses, dilligently digging to the root of their issues. Erica also helps aid in the training of young race horses and works as an exercise rider in the Thoroughbred racing industry. Erica remains not only active in competition, but also active in her quest for knowledge. She has trained under and continues to train under the tutelage of some of the following top professionals: Olympic and Grand Prix Jumper Nona Garson, USDF Gold medalist and Grand Prix Dressage rider Jennifer Allen, Grand Prix Jumper Sloane Coles, and 4* Event riders Jennie Brannigan, Sally Cousins, Andrea Davidson and Lainey Ashker.
Erica began her equestrian teaching career in 2000. She has taught at several large facilities between Central and South New Jersey. In October 2012, she started her own lesson program, Triple E Training, and began managing her own barn. Since then, Triple E Training has really developed into a premier lesson, training, camp, and sales program.
It has always been Erica's goal to be able to offer in depth professional instruction, in a relaxed and friendly environment, with opportunities for students to move up and show at local and rated levels. Her horsemanship educational philosophy is based on safety and understanding her students and the horses they ride.
Erica is a proud ambassador for Voltaire Design
"Not only are their saddles extremely well made, comfortable, and provide the utmost stability, but their designs (especially the Blue Wing Smart Saddle) are revolutionary to the equine industry. Voltaire Design saddles are handmade in France with the best quality leather and come with a variety of customizable options. I LOVE riding in my Voltaire Palm Beach!
Not to mention, they are also the first environmentally friendly saddler in the world. As an environmental enthusiast, I value the fact that for every saddle purchased, a tree is planted.
I would highly recommend Voltaire Design products to any of my clients"
