The showing rider draws huge inspiration from her mentors and has big plans for the working hunter scene. Alex Robinson checks in with Katy Green to find out how she juggles business and competition
We’re always told that to be successful you should surround yourself with those who inspire and encourage you to be the very best version of yourself. This is something Katy Green has done her entire life.
Looking ahead to the 2021 season, Katy has her carefully selected string of athletic working hunters ready to hit the circuit. While her natural gift for scouting out show ring talent can’t be denied, she is quick to credit her mentors for steering her in the right direction.
