Meet the Team
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.
Roberto was born on Jan 28, 1977 in Bogota, Columbia. He attended Gimnasio Moderno for high school and has a degree in economics from Universidad de Los Andes.
Roberto started riding at a young age. He showed a passion for horses which rapidly developed to become a lifestyle. As a young rider, Roberto was the American FEI Children's silver medalist in 1991, the South American FEI Junior champion in 1992 and the Intercontinental Championship of Young Riders Gold medalist in 1993.
In the year 2000 he moved to America where he began developing his business. Since then, Roberto has competed all over the world, jumping. Winning rounds in the Pan American Games in 2015, was double gold medalist in the central american games in 2016 and was the winner of the $1 million grand Prix in Ocala in 2016.

BreakAway Farm Horses
At BreakAway Farm, the care and love of our horses always comes first. Learn more about BreakAway Farm's current mounts.
Bink was Caitlyn's first horse and she has had him since he was 6 years old. Purchased to compete in the High Children Jumpers, Bink also competed in the hunter and equitation rings as well.
Winnie(Nadiola VD Bisschop)
Winnie is an 8 year old BEL warmblood. She came to BreakAway a little over a month ago from Belgium. She has fit in perfectly with our horses and program. Caitlyn fell in love with how brave she is and how much heart she has. She is currently jumping the 1.30m’s and we are hoping to move up with her soon!
