Cori Hoody grew up in Southern California, in the mountains of San Diego County. She first rode a horse when she was five years old as a birthday-surprise lesson. She discovered her passion, and has been riding ever since. She trained her first horse when she was 14 and bought her first horse when she was 15. Cori got involved in her local 4-H club and was a member for nine years. She was active in the horse project and horse judging project. She loved working with the 4-H kids and teaching them about horses. She attended community college in California and later transferred to Colorado State University in January of 2013. Cori graduated two years later with a Bachelor’s Degree in Equine Science. While attending CSU, she earned an internship with Chapman Performance Horses, training reining horses. Cori was with CPH for three years, starting two year olds, as well as showing and training aged horses. Cori now works at Dumb Friends League Harmony Equine Center as an Equine Trainer. She feels like she has finally found her place in the horse industry. Being able to help these horses into a better future, she says, is the best feeling in the world. She loves the gratification of gaining their trust and confidence over time, while building solid foundations. She has owned a purebred Arabian for 10 years and has competed in numerous endurance races. She also recently adopted a six year old quarter horse from Harmony and is planning to show next year.
