Meet Our Team

We are privileged to have such a wonderful team at Elk Mountain Riding Company.


Current Team Members


Abbie began her experience with us as a lesson student in 2016. Many of our regular customers know Abbie for her great attitude, and her enthusiasm for helping our customers to feel comfortable around our 1,000lb friends. She has extensive trail and show experience with various breeds of horses. Abbie attends Avery High School, and has plans to attend NC State in the future.


Brittany is our newest team member, and we aren't sure what we ever did without her! She has a passion for horses that shines through at the barn and on the trail. She has such a calm demeanor, and really enjoys working with our customers- especially the little ones. She is a great asset, and her giggle is absolutely contagious!


Philip started guiding part-time for us in 2020, and has become a valuable member of our team. Although Phillip is newer to horses than many of our guides, he is a natural with them, as well as with our customers. He is great at making our customers feel safe and right at home.


Previous Team Members


Many of our repeat customers ask us about Annon. She was a staple here while she attended Appalachian State University, where she graduated in 2020. You will have to extend your horse adventure travels a bit further west, to Colorado, to catch up with her these days.
