kaylawna-smithThe Next Level Eventing Riding Academy was founded by Kaylawna Smith. Kaylawna’s mission is to promote the sport of Eventing through the development of the Riding Academy’s junior riding program. She looks forward to instructing young riders of all ages from the beginner level up to the training level.

Kaylawna grew up in the equestrian world. She is the assistant rider to both Tamie and Heather, and in addition grooms for Heather at competition. Kaylawna has competed in multiple preliminary level competitions and at the One-Star level. In 2014, she placed 9th at the NAJYRC 1* with her mount, London Calling OHF. Kaylawna was an assistant for Dressage rider Niki Clarke. Not only did she get to ride and groom many very talented horses but she was able learn how to ride true Dressage. During her time spent working for Niki, Kaylawna, competed in an FEI Prix St. George where she finished in 2nd and 3rd place. Kaylawna is grateful for the opportunity that was given to her to work as Niki’s right hand and one of the top dressage riders in the United States. Kaylawna is enjoying running the Next Level Eventing Riding Academy as the head trainer and is excited to promote the sport of eventing.
