Owner & Head Trainer
Elizabeth D. Blaisdell
Beginning her riding career in New Jersey as a junior, Elizabeth’s background includes training from names such as George Morris, Frank Madden, Richard Keller, and Susie Hutchinson. Turning professional in 1999, Elizabeth’s Assistant Trainer position at PotCreek Meadow Farm in Washington allowed her the opportunity to solidify her foundation as a professional horsewoman, working with all levels of riders and horses at home and on the road. In 2004, the first incarnation of Harvest Moon Stables was opened in Southern California, where Elizabeth’s skills as a rider and trainer were showcased with client wins at WIHS and Zone 10 championships, as well as quality ribbons at indoors on the East Coast.
Since returning to the East Coast in 2011, Elizabeth has continued to work with students and horses of all levels, with clients ribboning at events from IEA Zone and National Finals to local medal finals to the Wellington Equestrian Festival. While Harvest Moon Stables’ location may have changed coasts, Elizabeth’s philosophy of placing an emphasis on catering to the client and encouraging horsemanship has not.
In addition to her success as a trainer, Elizabeth is A USHJA Certified Trainer and a USEF Licensed Official, holding her “r” in Hunter and Hunter/Equitation.
