Avery Klunick - Head TRAINER
Avery grew up in Midland, Texas and was an Area V Young Rider. She won team gold and placed 5th individually at Young Riders in 2011 in the then CCI2*. She returned in 2012 to Young Riders in the 3* and placed 7th individually. Avery majored in Finance at Texas Christian University and spent the summers on the west coast working for Olympic selectors, Bea and Derek di Grazia. Derek is a renowned XC course designer who most recently designed the XC at the Tokyo Olympics and has designed the XC at the Land Rover Kentucky 5* for 10+ years. Avery spent the summers in California and took her riding to the next level. During college she completed ten advanced level and 4* competitions with her Young Rider partner, In It To Win It, and qualified for the then Rolex Kentucky 5*, all while balancing an intense course load.
Immediately upon college graduation, Avery moved to the east coast to be a rider for Boyd Martin. Three months after college graduation she competed in her first 5* at Rolex. Avery was the youngest competitor there and she finished in the top third, with a clear cross country trip and some time faults. She continued working for Boyd after Rolex and moved her second horse, Ringwood Army, up to 3*. Sadly shortly after Kentucky, ‘Winston’ had a horrible colic and extensive stomach cancer was discovered. He had to be put down which was heartbreaking. Avery decided to slowly shift from riding professionally into a finance career. She has been working at JP Morgan for the past four years and most recently lived in the UK for two years. She worked at JP Morgan on American hours in London to campaign her self produced young horse, Pisco Sour, to the 3*L level. Avery rode with Australian Olympic silver medalist, Kevin McNab for the past two years and the highlight of her time abroad was competing at the Mondial du Lion Young Horse World Championship in France.
Avery moved back to the US to pursue her MBA in Austin this fall. She has spent the last ten years learning from the best in the sport and she is excited to teach in Austin while in graduate school. She is an extremely technical rider and teacher who believes in holding students accountable to a very detail-oriented, personal plan. She is also a very positive teacher who enjoys mentoring students and helping them reach their competition goals.
