Wordley Martin Equestrian is fortunate to work with some of the top competitive horse professionals in the industry. One such individual not only rose to the top of all the equitation championships as a young rider, she also went on to be one of the finest FEI show jumpers in the world. Brianne Goutal-Marteau has clocked miles competing in the US, Canada and Europe – winning multiple international grand prix competitions, and has represented the US at several Nation Cups.
Brianne has consistently been recognized throughout her career for her sportsmanship and exceptional riding skills. Earlier in her career she was awarded several junior championships and developing rider awards by the USEF. For over a decade she has either won or placed in the top ribbons at nearly every international competition including; WEF, Devon, Washington International, Old Salem, The Hampton Classic, Tryon, Upperville, Spruce Meadows, Fontainebleau, Chantilly and Paris (France), Falsterbo (Sweden), Beervelde (Belgium), and Barcelona (Spain). Her accomplishments throughout the world are literally too many to mention!
In 2017, Brianne and her husband welcomed their first child – and while she was grounded from competition, Brianne discovered her further enjoyment of coaching clients. She began to develop that side of her business, while riding a smaller string of horses. Throughout 2016/17 season she still was quite successful in the show ring, earning several top finishes at Tryon, WEF and the Devon Horse Show.
“My main horse is a 13 year old mare called Viva Colombia. I bought her last year from the Hymowitz family and she’s really become all I hoped she would! I am planning to start back up competing in the beginning of WEF with the goal of jumping 3 or 4 Saturday night Grand Prix’s over the circuit.
We wish Brianne the best in her countdown to baby #2, and we can’t wait to see her back in the ring in the near future, making Wordley Martin Equestrian Surfaces proud!
