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
Bronster winning a purse of $38,500 at Hollywood Park in 2011
Bronster is a sweet, easy going 7 year old 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.
Launching Pad at the Lake Washington Saddle Club's Carol Dean Porter Clinic in 2016
Launching Pad is a sweet and lovable athlete who pours his heart into his job of being a jumper. He is a 9 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.
