Let me introduce:

Shellie Graves

Shellie Graves has never known a life without horses. She was seven years old when she received her first pony. The pair bonded quickly and soon thereafter Shellie and Mary Legs were competing in the Pony Hunter classes at local area horse shows. She progressed quickly through the children’s and Junior Hunter divisions. It was then that Shellie knew she wanted to make teaching her career.


Upon graduating from high school in New Hartford New York, she enrolled at Morven Park International Equestrian Institute in Leesburg Virginia and received her teaching certificate in 1981.   She began her teaching and training career in Skillman New Jersey at the Thornridge Farm. She relocated to Pittsburgh Pennsylvania in 1982 and began teaching and training at the Greenmoor Common Equestrian Center. She is currently instructing at four farms in the Washington County, Pennsylvania area.


She has been training and instructing students of various ages and abilities in Dressage and Eventing for 28 years. Her Dressage experience ranges from The Walk-Trot Level through Second Level. Currently, she has numerous students competing at Novice and Training Level Eventing and lower level Dressage.  Shellie’s passion for her craft is reflected in her training and teaching of her students and their horses.
