Brooke Baker- Trainer

Brooke Baker is an FEI Two Star rider and 1.30m Show Jumper who has been the owner and head trainer of Freedom Farms Eventing for 16 years. After graduating with her Bachelors of Science, Brooke stepped into Corporate America and quickly decided that her heart was still in the barn with the horses and people. As a trainer, she was consistently on young, green and uneducated horses, and she knew that to bring the best to her clients, she had to learn from the best. Because of her desire to improve her own riding, Brooke bought a seasoned Young Riders horse to help teach her the ropes and stepped into the arena as a student with Karen and David O’Connor as her trainers. She topped the leader board for multiple seasons at Training level and then moved up to Prelim on her next horse. Brooke has traveled the East Coast as an FEI Two Star Rider and competed at most of the prestigious eventing venues around the country. 

 

Brooke believes it is incredibly important to grow her knowledge and education, and has therefore continued to work with the best of the best in all areas of the sport. She continues to ride with Karen and David O’Connor on a regular basis and show jumps with a Grand Prix World Cup rider, Christian Heineking, based out of October Hill Sporthorses in Weatherford. Her experience with upper level riders is vast and long standing, as she tries hard to foster her relationship with trainers and riders like The O’Connors, Hawley Bennet-Awad, Will Faudree, Allison Springer and many many more. 

 

Brooke places horsemanship and education of horse and rider at the top of her priorities, so she tries to work with each rider to form a partnership and relationship with their animal. She teaches with safety and improvement in mind, but uses kindness and  fun exercises to help cement the learning process. Brooke is outgoing and joyful and loves helping each rider reach their goals, whether they’re wanting to run Intermediate, navigate a 1.30m jumper course, or just have fun and sit the trot better!
