For those who want to take the sport seriously...
North Run is home to national equitation champions, successful national and international Grand Prix riders, and members of the United States Equestrian Team (USET). Based out of North Run’s facility in Warren, VT and Wellington, FL, trainers Missy Clark and John Brennan have produced stars from the equitation ring to the international show jumping arena.
> The Team
Missy has led the equitation and show jumping training ranks for years. Her strong roots in the US equitation system have helped her produce numerous top riders, many of whom have gone on to be successful professionals.
Originally from County Kildare in southern Ireland, John joined North Run in 1999 and has been an integral part of the team with his wife, Missy Clark, training many of the equitation/show jumping superstars of the 2000s.
Chili Dog & Dandelion
Dandelion (left) and Chili Dog (right) are Missy’s beloved wire-haired Dachshunds. They are a constant source of entertainment to all, and never far from Missy’s side. North Run and its clients are huge supporters of Danny and Ron’s Rescue as well as other animal rescue organizations.
We also have a dedicated Support Team. Click here for more info.

Thank you to all of the unsung heroes of the horse world. To the many people who get up at 3am at a horse show, who care for all of our horses day in and day out. Thank you to the many people who work on Christmas, New Years, Easter and more when others are celebrating the holidays.
Thank you to those who turn out all of our horses with the care and detail of the most dedicated artist. Who sometimes and too often aren’t mentioned when the wins and successes are being touted. Who sometimes are forgotten when the thought of a tip isn’t recognized or the gesture of bringing a coffee, a donut, a sandwich or a snack on a day that may have gone on for endless hours is overlooked.
Thank you to the army of people behind the scenes who are the true backbone of our sport. Thank you for everything you do for all of us and our wonderful horses every single day!
And finally, a very special thank you to our indelible North Run team for all you do.
You guys are the absolute best.
We couldn’t do it without you!🎖

Sometimes special moments occur in life.
Ava Stearns well earned win in the 2019 ASPCA Maclay National Championship on Acer K was one of those times. Ava’s talent, coupled with a lot of hard work, dedication, perseverance and loyalty has served her well over the span of her noteworthy junior career. Ava’s championship win in the Maclay came off the heels of winning the Res Championship at both the USEF east coast talent search finals and the WIHS finals. Ava and Max were also 7th in the USEF medal finals.
