BreakAway Farm began with a simple beginning, a girl's passion for horses. When Caitlyn Connors began her journey, she never dreamed that it would take her all the way to the top of the show jumping sport. 

With an incredible love for her horses and a desire to assist those around her, Caitlyn utilized her passion to create BreakAway Farm.

 

Dedication, trust and passion is what Caitlyn believes define her as a person and as a professional. Taking each client's needs into account and making sure they have the best experience possible. Trusting someone with their horses is an incredible feat, that's why Caitlyn and Roberto take great care when it comes to riding client horses or training in their program. Utilizing their time within the sport and learning from some of the top trainers in the industry is what separates BreakAway Farm's program.

Caitlyn is now at the University of Miami studying business communications and minoring in psychology.
