Mickel Parman has been riding most of her life. Growing up here at Ashton Lane Farm she started riding at the age of 3 and was in her 1st show by the time she was 5. At a young age she was taught how to start/break horses and bring them into competition level. She has been competing in the hunter ring for the last 15 years earning numerous championships including qualifying to ride in the emerging athletes program. She has had the opportunity to work with great horse people and trainers like Marion Hughes (Ireland Olympian). She continues to compete in the hunter ring as well as the jumper ring where she now competes at the highest levels in Grand Prix with her show horse Ledger(pictured above).
She has been a trainer here at Ashton Lane Farm for the last 10 years. She has worked with beginners to advanced riders and enjoys helping them understand and communicate with each horse they partner with. She specializes in pairing each individual rider with the right horse in size, temperament, and ability. If you are wanting to ride and show at all levels, she is ready to help make a plan for you to reach your goals.
