Meagan Davis’ family team centered business provides a great platform for learning. Building a beautiful barn and facility in Loxahatchee to extensively volunteering for youth, the Davis family genuinely cares for their clients and the sport of dressage. Meagan worked her way through all the programs available in the United States to become a strong FEI rider and coach, including Dressage4Kids Youth Dressage Festivals, (NAJYRC) Young Riders, and more. She shared, “In 2002, I rode in my first FEI competition as a pony rider, which at that time I was the youngest rider to have a foreign rider’s license, at age 11. I was able to compete the FEI ponies for three years, then went to the juniors in 2006 on my horse, Cachet. In 2007, we placed third at the USEF Festival of Champions for the FEI Junior level. 2009, I rode Bentley to the Reserve National Champion for Young Riders at the USEF Festival of Champions. Then 2010 was a big year winning the National Championship for Young Riders on Bentley and then going on to the Young Riders World Cup in Germany. My goal for the World Cup was to compete and do the best Bentley and I could. Finishing 7th in the A final and earning the title of highest placing US rider to ever compete there as a Young Rider; I'd say was Surreal!”

A perfect platform for learning, Meagan has a beautiful stable, a beautiful arena, and lots of property for riding. A super place to build confidence for a young horse or amateur rider, Meagan has a well-built education with a great work ethic. She shared, ““I try to keep my teaching very positive and fun while still working hard to get to the next level. I've been able to work with some of the best trainers in the world; Hubertus Schmidt, Henk Van Bergan, Lendon Gray, Scott Hassler, Courtney King-Dye, Dr. Volker Mortiz, Juan Manuel Munoz Diaz, Debbie Bowman, Bent Jensen, Tom Noone, and Holger Bechtloff. I enjoy being able to share all I've learned with my students. At the farm in NY I bring in a clinican each month for myself and clients to ride continue to grow with. One thing I think is very important is a balance of ring work and spending time taking the horses out to the field, for either a gallop, or training on some uneven ground to keep the horses on their feet. Once in a while I’ll have a horse that isn't sure about working in the field, but after a couple of times, I find they really enjoy it.
When it comes to working in the barn my parents raised me to never ask someone to do a job you wouldn't do yourself. With that said I do a little bit of everything around the farm. If something needs to be done I'm not afraid to get a little dirty and get it done.
I will always be competing and trying to represent the US at international competitions. Right now I'm bringing a couple client horses up the levels which I find very rewarding. I have a coming four year old that I own with my parents, who shows great potential. I truly enjoy coaching my students at shows and helping them to reach their goals. This year I helped an adult amateur client, who hadn't shown in over ten years, prepare for the Centerline Events Dressage show in August. She came out of the ring with a big smile on her face, that was a very proud moment for me as a trainer.
I love all of the programs (USDF and USEF and FEI) I’ve learned and competed in! Of course Dressage4Kids holds a special place in my heart because it helped me becoming the rider I am. Lendon Gray never stops giving kids opportunities to learn more, and I was able to be involved in quite a few; dressage4kids, dressage4ponies, the weekend educational program, and all of the clinics she put together. When I was younger I was able to ride in the USDF Jr/Yr clinic series with Conrad Schumacher, George Williams, and Sue Blinks. The one program I find very important: Riders4helmets. You won't see me on a horse without a helmet. I even competed in reining and I wore my helmet.”
Longview Farm North in Stone Ridge, NY
Originally owned by my parents the farm sold two years ago to Rich and Maria Weitzman. I lease the facility during the summer, which includes a beautiful 12 stall barn, an oversized outdoor arena, large paddocks, and great riding fields. The farm is only an hour and half north of New York City and is extremely easy to get to. Plus we are only 25 minutes away from the HITS show grounds in Saugerties NY.
Longview Farm South in Loxahatchee, Florida
My parents bought Longview Farm South when they sold the farm in NY. It now has a total of 2 barns with 20 stalls. There are 5 grass paddocks, a round pen and a regulation size dressage arena with GGT footing. Located across the street from White Fences and Equestrian Estates – Home of the Palm Beach Derby, we enjoy the super location for building confidence and strength in the horses and students.
