Meet Robyn Fisher, a truly talented eventer from California. She caught the eye of chef d'equipe Capt. Mark Phillips in 2004 with her victorious showing at Galway Downs CCI***, a World Cup Qualifier. She has been invited to train with USET in 2005,  2006 and 2007  as a contender for the US Equestrian Team.  She and her talented horses have added accolade and accomplishment to their already illustrious career and the future looks bright.

Roybyn Fisher excels in 2005 and 2006!

Robyn Fisher and her horses have staked their claim in the world of eventing. Robyn's 9th place standing in the 2006 US Eventing Association Top Ten Adult Riders List and 17th in overall 2006 Points Standings has cemented her role as contender to represent the US in the years to come. Her horses also claim their stake in this year's awards; Le Samurai was placed 10th overall in points for the 2005 year by the US Eventing Association.
Her mare, Lady Calido (shown above), was 2005 Preliminary Horse of the Year after just two years in eventing. 'Cali', as she is affectionately known, is also the fourth highest scoring Mare in the year 2005.  Lady Calido also clinched 2006 Intermediate Horse of the Year.  She was imported as a broodmare from Germany to the US in 2000. She continued her career as broodmare until Spring 2004, when she began her eventing career. Robyn trains her own horses and has brought both her prospects to the pinnacle of the sport of eventing.
