Felicia was born and raised in Warren County, NJ, and from a young age was bitten by the horse bug. Starting in 4-H and as a working student for various trainers in the area, she soon became a trusted full time farm hand and caretaker. Felicia has done a little of everything when it comes to riding; starting off on a mule who she trained in a variety of disciplines, to leasing dressage schoolmasters and greenies, and finally ending up with an OTTB whom she rides predominantly with the hopes to compete in 3-day eventing with. Formal education began by gaining an associates in Biology, and a summer working at a small animal clinic before heading to Rutgers to obtain her Bachelor’s in Animal Science. Felicia came home to join Cross River and fulfill her passion for caring for horses. When she’s not at work, she’s spending time with her menagerie of dogs and cats, usually up to something adventurous!
