A native of Illinois, Lauren grew up as a hunter/jumper rider competing on the local and 4H show circuit. She began eventing at the age of 12 and, by only 18, earned the opportunity to ride and work for U.S. Olympic gold medalists Karen and David O’Connor at their bases in Virginia and Florida. Her next step was becoming resident rider for Jacqueline Mars, a generous sponsor of the entire equestrian sport and eventing in particular. Lauren campaigns top horses in the program and helps bring along future stars.
