Rider and Owner
Wilhelmina Springmeyer was raised in Northern Nevada on a working cattle ranch. She has loved horses since a young age and started riding western at age six. When she turned 10 her family moved to Carmel Valley California. Once there Wilhelmina began riding English and competing in the Hunters. Thereafter, her family again relocated, to Santa Fe, New Mexico, where she continued showing in the Hunters.
During high school Wilhelmina began working as a working student, playing polo, and grooming at shows for her mentor and Hunter/Jumper trainer, Glee White. Glee had recently moved to New Mexico from Denver, Colorado. After spending a few years working and riding with Glee, Wilhelmina set her goal to operate her own business and become a horse trainer, focused on starting colts and fillies.
Meredith Manor Equestrian Center provided the experience and knowledge Wilhelmina needed to enhance and refine her native skills to become a horse trainer. While at school, Wilhelmina met other riders with the same dream from other countries and states. The school was a great foundation for experienced riders to launch themselves into their own equine businesses.
Backing colts under saddle was her key interest while at the Manor, and once she graduated with honors and the certification, Wilhelmina continued her education with other professionals, on the East Coast, in all disciplines to refine her horsemanship and training.
Currently Wilhelmina is training and teaching for the public in Las Vegas, Nevada and Flagstaff, Arizona.
