About the Team
Kyana started riding when she was five years old at a local barn in Los Altos where she first realized her passion for horses. She was hooked immediately!
When she was sixteen she discovered eventing and fell in love with the sport. Since then Kyana has brought many horses up the levels, including her upper level mount Bo who she competed to the intermediate level. Originally from the South Bay area, Kyana moved to the East Bay in 2012 to further her eventing education. She has trained and cliniced with professionals such as Lainey Ashker, David Acord, Hawley Bennett-Awad, Janelle Dunn, Heidi Gaian, Lauren LoPiccolo, Boyd Martin and Bea Di Grazia.
Kyana has been teaching professionally since 2010 and uses positive reinforcement and her enthusiastic personality to help her students to achieve the goals they desire. Kyana believes in not only teaching a solid riding foundation but also the values that go hand and hand with riding and competing such as hard work, confidence, compassion and good sportsmanship.
Alyssa started riding and working with Kyana in July 2021 and has since then become an integral part of Kyana’s team. Alyssa’s commitment and passion for horses comes through in her everyday work. She and her lease horse Al are currently competing at the Intro level with the Beginner Novice move up scheduled for the second half of 2023! Outside of the barn Alyssa has her eyes set on Chiropractic school with the end goal of being one of the best horse chiropractics in the area!
