Delanee Connors

Delanee has recently joined the team at RMEC.  She works with both youth and adults training/riding hunters and jumpers.

Delanee’s riding program evolved as her riders advanced from childhood into the adult world, and Delanee created Connors Equestrians LLC to meet the needs of riders of all ages and levels.

Delanee grew up in Connecticut and learned to ride horses at the New Cannan Mounted Troop, the last remaining junior cavalry in the U.S. Growing up in a cavalry program designed to teach leadership through horsemanship, gave her the knowledge and foundation to pursue a professional career with horses.

Working in student positions, internship programs, and as an assistant trainer to exemplary Colorado trainers, Delanee taught beginner riders and led horse camps. As part of these experiences, she had the opportunity to ride and show a multitude of sale horses for many different hunter and jumper trainers.

Through her life's passion for horses and as a new mother, Delanee found a rewarding experience in introducing children to horses. Rather than teach young children in the same way as adults, Delanee was driven to find better ways to teach children and foster a love of horses. She developed fun and interesting ways to introduce important life-long horsemanship concepts while still having fun.

Delanee, Connors Equestrian LLC, offers lessons at many levels of dedication, from the regular lesson rider to the competitive show rider.

Training and lesson packages for horses and riders are available.
