Wendy Lee

Wendy Lee, a professional horse trainer and showman began showing horses at the early age of 9. Since then, her career of training and showing horses has earned her numerous National and World Championship titles in multiple breeds, and multiple disciplines including halter, western and English pleasure, showmanship, and trail. She developed her love for the Gypsy Vanner when she was first introduced to Summers Traveler, a black gelding who convinced her how special the breed was.

To fully understand all aspects of horse showing, Wendy certified and became a judge in 1995, judging an average of 40 shows per year until 2009, when she began her show career with the Gypsy Vanners.

Although she is currently ‘semi-retired’ from showing,   Wendy found it difficult to completely retire, and continues to show, conduct clinics, and judge on a limited basis.
