When Lisette Milner packed herself and her 3 horses off to Germany in the late spring of 2003, it was just supposed to be for the summer months.
But, both Lisette and her horses were doing so well training with Ernst Hoyos, she decided to stay. For Milner, that meant she was leaving behind her beautiful new home and farm in Wellington, Florida, her students, and husband Michael, who long ago nicknamed her Mia, for Missing in Action.
It's down to serious business in Germany, as Lisette continues to train with Ernst Hoyos, one of the most noted trainers in the world. In addition to American team rider Lisa Wilcox, who resides in Germany at the famed Gestut Vorwerk, Hoyos is known as the trainer for Ulla Salzgeber, and Heike Kemmer, as well as many other top riders who seek his advice and time.
Lisette is in some of the finest company in the world, and just can't bring herself to come home…..yet.
