Trainer – Erin Bownds
Erin Bownds owns and operates Chimney Creek Farm, LLC out of Little Raven Ranch. With over 25 years experience, Erin is passionate about the equine industry. Growing up in Texas, Erin was successful in both the Junior Hunter and Junior Jumper ring.
Since moving to Colorado in 2001 she worked under Paul Rorhbach and continued her education and show career. In 2009 she started Chimney Creek Farms and has operated throughout the Colorado area. Erin has vast experience with hunters/jumpers/equitation as well as training green horses, and coaching all levels of riders. Multiple trips to Florida to work with Jamie Stryker and his large string of horses, as well as vast connections nation-wide, allow her to have many opportunities available for clients regarding sales and lease options for top-quality horses.
Clients and horses have consistently proven to be highly successful in h/j and equitation rings at A Shows both in and out of state, and local CHJA shows as well. Her teaching style is focused towards precision and accuracy, helping the horse to jump the best it can, all while having fun with riding and creating a connection between the horse and rider.
