After a childhood of training and showing, under the tutelage of her father, Edwin Don Parks, Veterinarian and Military Horse Soldier in the 124th U.S. Cavalry during WWII, and the passionate love of horses and support from her mother, Marjorie Bronson Parks; Holly began pursuing a professional career in the horse industry after obtaining her Equestrian Degree at Sullins College in Bristol Virginia.It was there where Holly studied under Hugh Wiley, and Ms. Touchstone of the U.S. Equestrian Team, and upon graduation became the Director and Instructor of Saddle Seat Equitation at Richlon Farms owned by (the late) Lonnie Lavery and Renee Lavery in Sharon Center Ohio. Holly invites you to view her Riding School, training program, and Interscholastic Equestrian Teams.
From Academy and grass root horse shows to the Morgan Grand National and World Championships, Saddlebred Red Mile in Lexington and Championships in Louisville, Holly has been producing horses and riders for over 30 years professionally.
“I love showing, I always have! Holly states, The youth of today inspire me and the absolutely wonderful and dedicated parents are the real reason I am able to do the work that I am passionate about. Having a goal and pursuing it to beyond your imagination and wildest dreams is what I foster and instill in my riders. Safety, correctness, strong work ethic, and determination are the ingredients that must go into making a rider. Self discipline, learning how to lose graciously, and just being a nice person can get you far in life and you learn all this on the back of a horse! Logic and reasoning, organizational skills, being humble and polite will get you to the winners circle in riding and in living.”
“If you get there by other means and people do of course, it’s not quite the same. Sleeping soundly because you did it right cannot be duplicated. Then you greet yourself in the morning and guess what you are happy!” Holly Robinson

Showing, summer camps, IEA Equestrian Teams and individual and small group lessons for all ages and levels.
