I've been riding with Chelsea for five years now. In that time, I've seen my riding improve so much. I know that any jump Chelsea puts in front of me I'm capable of doing because she'd never ask me to do anything she didn't believe I could do. Not only do I love Chelsea as a trainer, but I love her like a big sister. - Amanda

I met Chelsea as an adult Beginner Rider, middle-aged and riding for all of 9 months. I was also a new horse owner or more accurately, he owned a new scared human. Within 4 months of working with Chelsea, we were competing in and winning at local horse shows. Chelsea articulates her directions and expectations so clearly that she empowers her students to become the best riders possible. - E

I have been with Chelsea for six years. During that time Chelsea helped me find my first horse, start training him from the ground up, compete at my first event, find my current mount, and start teaching some of the younger students at Penwick. I would not be where I am in my riding now if it were for her. She has also has boosted my confidence immeasurably. She really understands all of her students and creates a plan that is individual to that rider and horse combination. Chelsea has always been like a big sister to me and someone I can trust. – Leigh Ann

In the five years that Amanda has been riding with Chelsea, I've seen such tremendous growth not only in her riding but in her self-confidence as well. Chelsea is so much more than a trainer to her students; she's a mentor, a big sister, and a friend. Her ability to match a student with a horse is absolutely incredible. Once the match is made and the relationship with the horse is established, the girls are off and jumping!  I've never trusted a trainer the way I trust Chelsea. My faith in her is never ending. We'd follow her to the end of the earth! - Jill

I cannot say enough wonderful things about Chelsea and Penwick Eventing.  My 14 year old daughter has been transformed as a rider and as an individual with Chelsea's spirit and patience.  Chelsea has a unique knack for adjusting her training style to fit the rider's skills and personality. Above all else she CARES about her riders and the horses!  Before meeting Chelsea, we searched all over for the right horse and training situation.  Chelsea found the PERFECT leasing arrangement for us!  Riding with Chelsea is not like getting a lesson from a teenager hired by a barn to pay off their own boarding--Chelsea is a PROFESSIONAL you can TRUST.- Dr. Linda Busch Somach 

Other Professionals:
Chelsea helped a client purchase a gelding that was by my stallion. The gelding was previously in a situation that was not the best and he was very rough physically. Chelsea helped the owner get him into a successful training program. She got him in good weight and within 18 months took a green broke horse to a first place finish at Pony Club Nationals in dressage and also some top placings in local events. I would be honored if Chelsea every purchased another horse from me.  - Maria Hayes, Frosty Oak Stables
