Mary Pardee, B.A., M.Ed.

Director of Riding, Assistant Professor of Equine Studies

IHSA English Coach

Mary has had over 25 years of experience as a teacher and trainer, specializing in hunters and equitation. Mary’s students have competed successfully at such shows as the Winter Equestrian Festival (Wellington, FL), Capital Challenge, USEF Pony Finals, IHSA National Finals, Biltmore, Upperville, Lexington (KY & VA) and many others. Although her expertise is in hunters, Mary has also prepped TB sales horses in the United States and England, taught and trained in Ireland, and has experience with polo and driving. Mary believes in a classical approach to riding, teaching strong basics in dressage as well as jumping. Her goal is to create a "thinking rider” who develops a partnership with their horse. She has trained at facilities in Ohio, Indiana, Kentucky, Seattle, WA and Virginia. Mary received her B.A. in English from the University of Kentucky, her Secondary English teaching certification from Cleveland State University, and her M.Ed. from Lake Erie College.
