Liz Austin Makes it to Florida in Time for The New Year
Thursday, December 30, 2010
We caught up with Liz Austin yesterday as we were putting the finishing touches on her . She was at the overnight layover heading from Vermont to Florida with 9 horses, five of which were youngsters from her breeding program. "We just turned them all out in the paddocks and everyone is being very good!" Arriving in Florida today Austin's team is filling two barns in Loxahatchee, as she is ready to take on a new year inspired by her students, clients, and her "main man" Olivier (Fizzy). MPH
At 27, Liz Austin has already spent a lifetime in the saddle. Influenced by her mother, Dressage Grand Prix rider and trainer Madeleine Austin, Liz calls herself "one of those lucky kids born into the horse world. Her dressage success has not only been with her mother’s two time Brentina Cup Champion, and top ranked 2010 Grand Prix Stallion Olivier, but in the work she continues with her clients, students and up and coming horses from her mother’s breeding operation imajica.net. Whether at her location in Vermont in the summer months, or in South Florida during the winter, Austin is enjoying the fruits of her labor with quality clients and horses, all while finishing up her college degree with on line courses.
