Third Place Winner, The Maryland Horse Trials Instructor Recognition Program 2018
Chiantel Davis Beaumont started riding on a wonderful Off Track Thoroughbred named Sneakers. Those first lessons sparked a love for the horse which has grown stronger with time. She was given her first pony, a Connemara mare, for her 12th birthday and moved up to OTTBs, warmbloods and crossbreds within a couple years. She gained immeasurable experience working for many years close family friends' farm and veterinary practice. She showed in dressage, evented in USEA Area I and competed at local shows, and was an upper level Pony Club member fortunate enough to regularly ride with eventers such as Marshall Gray (right-hand person to Jack LeGoff, US Olympic Team), Mary O'Rourke (IRE) and Anna Monds (NZ) and Level IV Centered Riding Instructor Judy Cross.
After attending the University of Maine, where she studied microbiology, Chiantel moved to Maryland to continue her education at Baltimore School of Massage and completed the Equissage program for Equine Sports Massage Therapy. During this time, she married and started a family. She and her husband, Mark, then returned to her home state of Maine where she actively rode, taught, trained, competed, served as the Disctrict Commissioner of Penobscot Pony Club for several years, and practiced bodywork for both horses and humans (see the CDB Bodywork page). She is an active member of the USEA, USEF and USDF, and travels to Ocala for winter training and dressage tune-up. After moving back to Maryland in 2013, Chiantel got her Maryland Jockey Club exercise license to gallop racehorses, and earned her USEA ICP certification in 2014. In 2018, she was awarded 3rd place in the Maryland Horse Trials Instructor Recognition Program. Chiantel's training center is based in Clarksville, Maryland.
