Head Coach Hunt Seat Team


"I have been involved in the SCU team for 4 years, and have been the head coach for the last two years. A lifelong horsewoman, I have ridden and shown horses from a young age. I graduated from Texas A&M University, where I rode on the equestrian team while obtaining a bachelors degree in Business. Now I juggle coaching, teaching preschool and being a mom to twins Sophie and James, age 3 1/2, and horses Ruso and Apollo (both of whom love being a part of the team lessons). I absolutely love coaching the team; getting to know our wonderful student athletes is a true pleasure. My best moments as a coach are traveling with team president, Lexie Smallwood, to IHSA nationals in Kentucky last April, where she won the Intermediate Fences division; and our team successes this fall - High Point Team one day each at the UCSC and Stanford shows. Our team has come so far and continues to improve and impress me. I am a lucky girl!" -Nikki Abercrombie
