about me 

Kat Fuqua is an accomplished Champion Equestrian of Ponies and Junior Hunter/Jumpers, showing and owning over a dozen ponies and horses that she trained with determination, energy and initiative to be the best in class.  

 

The Atlantan native, was born in 2007 to Grand Prix Dressage parents and has been riding all her life at her Collecting Gaits Farm in Georgia. She has trained with top equestrians including Dressage Olympian Michelle Gibson, FEI Grand Prix Champion Jason Canton, and top hunter/jumper trainers from the time she could walk. 

In Fall of 2017 Kat got her first Junior Hunter 3'6" RS Levitation and started competing and winning.  Having ridden horses then for less than eight months, many say at ten years old Kat is beyond her years in feel and talent in the sport and definitely a rising and long lasting star. In 2019 Kat trains with Jimmy Torano, International Grand Prix Jumper, USEF Large "R" Judge, and expert Hunter Equitation professional. He helps Kat bring championship winnings to both her ponies and her junior hunters.
