Name: Melissa Taylor
Lives: Florida, USA
International Grand Prix rider and trainer, Melissa Taylor, began her competitive riding career as a child in hunt seat equitation and continued in that discipline as an adult. In the late 1990s, she trained briefly as a three-day eventer and ,in 1999, began training exclusively in dressage. Melissa rose rapidly up the ranks as an Adult Amateur with her horses Ike and Cidor. She began training with Danish Olympic athlete Lars Petersen in 2002 and made her Grand Prix debut that same year with Cidor. Taylor earned her United States Dressage Federation (USDF) Silver and Gold Medals and claimed many Champion and Reserve Champion honors at some of the most prestigious dressage shows on the eastern seaboard, including CDIs at Dressage at Devon, Allentown, Raleigh, and the NEDA Fall Festival. Since 2005, she qualified and competed at the USEF Dressage Festival of Champions many times aboard her horses Succes, Schumacker Solyst, Dacardo and Chicco Roslev. Melissa and Schumaker achieved unparalleled success to be named alternates for the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. She and Hanoverian mare Shantiania have been rising in the ranks and the two hit the 70 percent mark in March of 2015 in the Prix St. Georges Developing Horse at the Adequan Global Dressage Festival in Wellington, Florida.
A professional rider and trainer, Melissa also owns and operates Legacy Farms based in Loxahatchee, Florida, with husband Lars Petersen. She manages the day-to-day operations of the 30+ stall barn, which includes scheduling lessons and clinics. Melissa and the staff at Legacy Farms work tirelessly, ensuring all the needs of horses and riders alike are met. And, like Lars, Melissa is up before dawn to school her own horses before her “real work” day begins.
