Mette Larsen is a life-long equestrian, starting in her early years as a pony clubber, taking that foundation and philosophy and allowing it to evolve into who she is today. “Pony club taught me to consider all of the aspects of caring for the horse.” Her education continued and broadened with all of the wonderful and accomplished trainers she has had the privilege to ride with over the years, refining her range of riding interests into a love of dressage. With an acceptance into Morven Park International Equestrian Institute and a teenager, Mette was fortunate to train with Katherine Worthy and Lt. Col. Mark Darley. The Colonel, who rode on two Olympic Eventing teams, rode in the calvary for 20 years, and managed the Queen of England’s stables for two years, “showed me how you could ride a horse, look like you were doing nothing, and have the horse dance beneath you. He also taught me something just as important, that as a teacher and trainer, you should always train your student’s horse so that they can ride them.”
