Karine Gordy enters her fifth season as the Director of Sewanee's Equestrian program.
Gordy comes to Sewanee from Walnut Trace Farms in Nashville, Tenn., after serving as the Head Trainer from 2014-15. During the same tenure at Walnut Trace, Gordy served as the sole proprietor at the Charhan Stables Training Facility in Lookout Mountain, Ga.
“I am thrilled to join the Sewanee family and have the opportunity to work with the riders,” said Gordy. “I am one of those lucky enough to do what they love to do for a living.”
Originally from the Untied Kingdom, Gordy began her career at Churchill Stables in the UK.
“Winston Churchill once said, ‘the outside of a horse is good for the inside of a person.’ Sewanee offers this type of good both inside and outside the arena.”
Gordy is a certified instructor for the British Horse Society and the United States Dressage Federation.
