Pegasus Eventing

ELLEN DOUGHTY-HUME

A little background on me: I grew up in Michigan in a non-horsey family. I was first introduced to horses when I was eight years old at Girl Scout camp. After camp, my mom signed me up for lessons and I rode at a few hunter jumper barns, a saddleseat barn, and finally, an eventing barn. I fell in love with eventing after my first time going cross-country, and the technicality of the dressage intrigued me as well.
My parents helped me buy my first horse, an off-the-track-thorougbred (OTTB), when I was sixteen. I trained him for a little less than two years and sold him. I then bought my next OTTB. I took this horse to college with me, and competed him through Training Level, before selling him and buying my next two OTTBs. In my last semester of college at Michigan State University, I participated in a fantastic study abroad program and was able to spend 6 months living and riding in Northern Ireland at Enniskillen College. I took courses such as Equine Nutrition, Equine Sports Medicine, Dressage Equitation, and Jumping Equitation. It was a great experience and I learned a lot while I was overseas.
Upon returning from Ireland in 2006, I did several interviews around the USA, and landed a job in Texas, teaching riding lessons and training horses. I worked there for two years, and then decided to branch out on my own and started Pegasus Eventing. I have been teaching and training since.
I found Obie as a 5-year-old in 2008 while I was searching for horses for a client. I went to try him out and fell in love with him. I knew this horses could be something special, and I bought him that day and brought him through the levels myself. I feel like Obie and I have a special partnership; we know each other so well and have made this journey to the top together.
