Keely Cooley is rider of over 10 years who focuses primarily on eventing but does a little bit of hunters. She competes at CCI1* in eventing as well as some pony hunter and green hunter. Her upper level event mare Don’t Ask Why (Sassy) is a 12-year old homebred Belgian/TB, and they began their journey into the eventing world together 6 years ago. With Sassy’s background in fox hunting and Keely’s in hunter/jumpers, they have forged a strong partnership to move up the levels and compete both nationally and internationally. Keely also has a 6-year old halfbred Connemara named An Irish Blessing (Charm) who she has had since Charm was 8 months old. She was the first horse that Keely started along with guidance from her mom and trainers. Keely hopes to compete Charm at the CCI2** level in eventing. Her long term goals are to compete at the four star level in eventing while also focusing on bringing up young horses. Her short term goals are to hopefully compete at the two star level with Sassy and possibly go to the North American Junior Young Rider Championships.
