Kate Brown, a Philadelphia native, comes to Northwestern with over 20 years of experience as an equestrian professional. She learned to ride at Northwestern as a teenager, and advanced to camp instructor before leaving for Cazenovia College in NY, where she studied Equine Business Management. As part of her training, she returned to Northwestern as Assistant Barn Manager in 2008-2009. Kate eventually bought her own horse farm in upstate NY, overseeing a stable of 30 horses, a lesson program, and a successful equestrian team. Kate is a highly skilled instructor and trainer in the equitation, hunter, and jumper disciplines. Northwestern was pleased to welcome Kate back to her “home” barn in February 2017 as Barn Manager and Head Trainer. Kate successfully built Northwestern Stable’s Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) program, coaching both Middle and Upper School Teams.
