Melissa Williams

Melissa Williams, Instructor

Melissa is a longtime rider – spending years as a campaigner on the CHSA and VHSA circuits in her childhood.  She was a standout in 1992-93, jumping 3 feet and winning multiple CHSA and VHSA year end awards.  In recent years, Melissa has diversified her equestrian interests.  She still rides regularly and is planning her show comeback this winter.  In addition, Melissa currently serves as Barn Crew Leader where she facilitates care for all of our boarders and school horses.  When not in the barn or in the ring, you can find her out on the trail – often with her buddy, Waldo!  Melissa serves as Trail Boss for Lakewood Trails and loves taking horses on out of the ring adventures.  Melissa has proved herself a knowledgeable and capable horsewoman and is especially excited to share her love of riding with beginners in our school program.  As a bonus, it is worth noting that Melissa is also a trained chef and she makes every Stonehouse potluck spectacular!
