Originally from Northeast Illinois, Nita discovered her love for riding across country while foxhunting with the Mill Creek Hunt. Competitive by nature and always hungry to learn, eventing became her discipline of choice. College brought Nita to Lexington, KY, where she bought her OTTB, Alarmabull. In 2016, Nita was awarded the “Worth the Trust Scholarship” through USEA, which jump started her eventing career at the upper levels. Nita and Bully have competed all over the East Coast, winning and consistently in the top placings at the Intermediate level. The pair finished 10th in the USEF National 2* Championship and took home the Mid-Atlantic Thoroughbred Rescue Trophy for being the highest placed Thoroughbred at the prestigious Fair Hill International in 2017.

Nita has experience riding and working with a wide variety of horses, in all stages of training. She spent the 2017 season riding under Tim Bourke, and has also ridden with many top riders including Denny Emerson, Doug Payne, and Buck Davidson.

Nita strives to create a positive learning environment for riders from beginners to the Preliminary Level.
