About the Sponsors

Newport Saddlery

  • Newport Saddley is a premium retailer, distributor and designer/manufacturer committed to bringing you superior saddlery goods, riding apparel, and horse care products. Since it's inception, Katie has been on hand to help select and design different tack offerings. While still a new company, Katie is excited to see where Newport Saddlery will go.


  • EquStem enables horse owners to utilize equine stem cell technology for tendon, ligament, joint injuries and more. Katie has recently teamed up with EquStem to educate interested horse owners in the benefits of stem cell therapy. Check out their web site to learn more, or just ask Katie!


  • Located in Mount Airy, Maryland, Stablemates has been a family-owned and operated tack store since 1965. They stock a large variety of products for both English and Western riders at all skill levels. They have a great selection for all your eventing needs, whether you need a new watch, whip, or even a muck tub. Plus their supplement selection is quite extensive. What better way to comparison shop, than to have all your options right in front of you. And if for some reason they don't have your product in the store, they'll simply order it for you.


Voltaire Design

  • Voltaire Design: The Voltaire Design mission is to help everyone fulfill their full potential. Their goal is to not only sell high-end products to their customers, but to work with each rider to craft for them a product that will help improve their riding. Voltaire Design relies on the long French tradition of saddle making. But Voltaire Design is also the first saddle maker to get help from the fashion industry in the designing of their product.

Bob and Pat Wherley

  • Since the very beginning, Katie's parents have been there to support her competitive career. Whether allowing her to operate out of their farm in Middletown, Maryland, or buying her that first horse, without them, Katie would not be where she is today.

Barbara Werther

  • A long time friend and investor, Barbara was kind enough to lease me The Dealmaker, my first prelim horse. When not busy practicing law, she can be found out competing, still at the Preliminary level. Barbara was the one that introduced me to my long time trainer Packy McGaughen. She recently invested in Ralphie who was recently sold to a top hunter barn in New Jersey.

Mike Wherley

  • Mike is always there to help when my computer wants to fight with me about entries or printing pictures. He has been an incredible help over with years at shows, whether he's taking photos or going on food runs. He's invested in Baywatch and Gem, both sold into the hunter/jumper world.
