Owners of Glenbaer
Andrea with Galaxy, Andrew with Deacon
Andrea began riding at age 3 and competing at age 5, and spent eight years competing in hunters and equitation through the "A" circuit. At age 13, she began eventing, and has successfully trained and competed to Intermediate. She has trained with internationally renowned event riders Lucinda Green, Denny Emerson, Mike Plumb, Capt. Mark Phillips, and David O'Connor. Andrea's dressage training has been largely influenced by FEI instructors Jane Karol and Linda Parmenter, as well as sessions with clinicians such as Sarah Geikie and Dutch trainer Claes Bierenbroodspot.
In consecutive years as a junior rider, Andrea's competition was highlighted by winning the honor of USCTA (now USEA) Area 1 High Point Junior Novice Rider (1999), High Point Junior Training Rider (2000), and High Point Preliminary Young Rider (2001). In addition, in 2000, Andrea won the title of USCTA National Junior Training Rider of the Year, riding Without Consent. In 1999, she was the Area 1 Novice Champion, and in 2001, the Area 1 Preliminary Reserve Champion.
A United States Hunter Jumper Association Certified Trainer and Massachusetts-licensed riding instructor, Andrea has regularly taught in New England since 2002. As an undergraduate, she was also an instructor in Mount Holyoke College's nationally recognized equestrian program. After a brief hiatus from competition in order to complete undergraduate studies at Mount Holyoke, Andrea is again schooling and campaigning her new youngsters and putting the finishing touches on Glenbaer's training facilities.
As J. Michael Plumb's assistant trainer, Andrea's perspective and approach lie in solidifying the correct, proper skills and techniques needed to ride accurately and effectively. Andrea's instruction and training assists in developing clear communication between riders and horses that have reached a "road block." Likewise, her style and methods allow riders to correctly progress to the next level without becoming rushed or overfacing their horses.
Andrea is also a United States Eventing Association (USEA) Certified Course Designer for the Beginner Novice through Training levels. She has extensively apprenticed with USEF 'R' and FEI 'I' course designers, including John Williams, Morgan Rowsell, and Tremaine Cooper. Her courses are constructed to promote forward-thinking approaches, accurate and precise riding, and confidence building experiences for both horses and riders. As of 12/2012, she is finalizing the necessary requirements to pursue her USEF 'r' license in course design.

Andrew S. Glenn
Major Andrew S. Glenn is a graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, and is currently stationed at Ft. Leonard Wood, MO. In his "free time," he is a committed (and rather talented!) polo player.
Andrew began his riding career by first learning the ropes on Deacon, and then beginning competition on a lovely Irish Sport Horse. When home in NC, Andrew handles a large part of groundwork with Glenbaer's own youngsters, properly reinforcing appropriate behavior and manners. Andrew also enjoys bringing along Glenbaer horses for endurance, hunter paces, and foxhunting.
