Hubbard Equine's Caitlin Hubbard is a CHRB-licensed trainer, exercise rider and veterinarian's assistant. She began consistent horse studies at age seven at Evergreen Equestrian Center in Kirkland, WA. After graduating from high school, she found her first job riding horses for Meagher Farms in Davis, CA, while working on her bachelors' degree. After graduating with a BS in Biology, she continued riding horses at Golden Gate Fields in Berkeley, CA as an exercise rider. Racehorses took her residence down to southern CA, as well as across the country, traveling with some of her boss's horses when they went to run at other racetracks. After 10 years of riding racehorses, Caitlin hung up her galloping chaps. Everything hurt. Caitlin now works as a wastewater treatment operator, enjoys owning and operating Hubbard Equine, and spending time with her best friends Launching Pad and Bronster. Say hi if you happen to see them riding around the Pilchuck Tree Farm or at one of the local hunter jumper horse shows in the area!

Bronster in the Lake Washington Saddle Club's Hunter Derby
What a lovable cute face!
Bronster is a sweet, easy going 2008 thoroughbred gelding. He was a good racehorse, with career earnings of $73,000! Now he likes to take it easy. His easy going attitude and significant athletic ability make him a lovely hunter.

We think he looks like his great grandpa, Nasrullah
Launching Pad is a sweet and lovable athlete who pours his heart into his job of being a jumper. He is a 2006 year old thoroughbred gelding with career earnings at the racetrack of $53,000. He doesn't always take things quite as easy as Bronster, but he has a lot of fun.
Wizard taking a nap
Wizard loves to have a roll on the driveway... :)
Wizard is a 14.2 hand mustang pony. He's tough as nails, and retired. Always looking for some treats or pets, he's a pleasure to have around the stables.
Rosie on her way out for a ride! And .. Launching Pad in for the photo bomb...
Rosie is a lovely older draft mare. She came to us out of a kill pen and is privately owned. She loves go for walks around the property or out on the tree farm!
Who couldn't love that face?? Ender is a 2013 blue roan quarter horse, privately owned. He's the youngest one here, and one of the most lovable horses we've met. As soon as you walk into the barn this little one's head pops out, looking for pets and love.
