With more than twenty plus years of riding, training and competing experience, Hope Delle Bovi brings a strong level of professionalism and commitment to our program. She began competing at the age of 9, spending many years showing successfully throughout the Northeast region in various equitation, hunters and jumper divisions. As Captain of the Equestrian Team at the University of Scranton, Hope continued to develop and refine her riding skills, as well as her natural leadership and teaching abilities. Upon receiving her degree, she continued her career in the equestrian world as a trainer (certified by the American Riding Instructor Association), as well as a talented and successful equestrian competitor in her own right. She continues her education in all areas of horsemanship, regularly attending clinics and seminars throughout the year in an effort to gather even more information and skill to bring to her students and to the SRRC program.
Hope trains and coaches many members of the current SRRC Show Team, preparing them for all aspects of equestrian competition. Hope and her students compete successfully at many horse shows throughout the season, from small schooling shows to some of the top rated shows in the country. Her commitment to the SRRC program is unparalleled, and you will usually find her at the barn, working with students and horses from early in the morning to late at night 6-7 days a week. She is a highly skilled trainer with a strong track record of success who always goes the extra mile for her clients.

Growing up competing, riding, and training in Equitation, Hunters, Medals, and Jumpers, Alexis found her love for riding and training at a young age. From numerous wins in Equitation championships to more recent year end Jockey Club Thoroughbred Incentive Programs, High Points and Jumper Classic wins, Alexis has proven herself as a well-rounded and accomplished trainer.
Alexis has demonstrated a wonderful gift of working with all ages and levels of riders with her calm, patient, and kind demeanor. Her great attention to detail and her desire to learn as well, is what inspires her as a rider and as an instructor. Alexis uses the same basic principle, a solid foundation for results that last, thus has proven to build confidence in the production of young and/or green horses as well as with her students.
Over the years of her riding career, Lucy has successfully trained and shown in Eventing, Jumpers, Equitation, and Hunters. From a very young age, she has had a passion to help others succeed in their riding. Now as a trainer, that drive to help others is her main priority. She has a gift for explaining and breaking things down during her lessons in a very thorough and effective way, while also keeping the lesson fun and entertaining. Lucy is a firm believer in bringing horsemanship back into American equestrian youth and teaches her students to be real horsemen and not just riders. She constantly tries to better herself as a horsewoman, rider, and coach, as she knows you can never stop learning.
Lucy has worked with and under other professionals such as Anne Kursinski, Shane Ledyard, and Jacquelyn Stapel.
With a lifetime of diverse experience, Celeste brings a knowledge base that is beneficial to many different ages and ability levels; from the little ones just discovering the wonder of the sport, to the more advanced rider looking for a competitive career.
Celeste spent her childhood and teenage years shadowing her trainers’ every move, riding every horse or pony she could, getting opportunities to help train young/green ponies, and attending shows regularly, often taking a younger horse or pony out for their first time.
As a young adult, Celeste found joy in imparting her knowledge to the next generation of riders. She began teaching as an apprentice at a farm in Berks County, PA and soon opened her own program. She thrives on watching her riders progress from their very beginnings to successful show careers and everything in between.
