Trainer / Coach
Brandy Snodgrass started her riding career at the age of 3 years old. Since that age, her entire life has been devoted to the equine industry. Successfully competing from the age of 9 years and older she earned top ribbons in the Hunter/ Jumper disciplines. Her competitions took her all over the A show circuit showing in upper level classes. She also successfully placed 2nd at the Pennsylvania National Horse Show.
At the age of 17 years old, Brandy decided to begin her teaching career by coaching the IUPUI equestrian team. Throughout the two years as coach, the team was very successful and finished with top honors. She continued to teach throughout college and also her show career at several top Hunter/Jumper facilities. Many of the riders she started are still riding to this day and have become extremely successful in their own careers. While earning a Business Management Degree from Ball State University, Brandy also worked as an Exercise Jockey for a Racehorse farm in Muncie, IN. Duties included breaking and training up to 50 racehorses per season and teaching them everything from the start of their careers right up to their first race day and also exercising them at the track.
After College, she decided a change was needed and moved to Orlando, Florida. There she spent 4 years working as a performer for Arabian Nights dinner theater under the direct training of a top dressage rider. Starting a family in her late 20s, Brandy decided it was time to move back to Indiana. After a short time adjusting, she decided it was time to get back to her goals and dreams. Starting back training at a small local barn, she built up a strong clientele base that kept growing and growing. The birth of the Central Indiana Equestrian Team was born in 2014. With the equestrian team now becoming the soul of her farm and promoting even more growth over the next few years the birth of Kolowa Equestrian became a reality in January 2019.
