Originally from the East Coast, Meg grew up under top trainers including 4 star event rider Nancy Guyotte. Always on the search for another ride Meg competed in high school IEA. As a college student at Drew University, Meg trained most notably under Osvaldo Ornia Pacher of Palermo Show Stables primarily riding imported Argentinian Warmbloods for the hunter, jumper, and equitation rings. Meg also served as a rider for the Drew University Division 1 IHSA Team, piloting different horses to multiple equitation wins.
After moving to the West Coast in 2013 Meg was able to further develop her love for troubled horses and hard cases. Meg has successfully repurposed a variety of horses into fruitful carriers, including ex race horses, "Premarin Foals," and wayward warmbloods. Since moving to the West Coast Meg has taken horses deemed "worthless" from ground zero to Grand Prix level.
When Meg is not riding or showing, she fills her days with teaching. Meg has a keen eye for detail, which she pairs with a gentle but firm demeanor and a good sense of humor.
"We have been using Meg Dunne as our family trainer for approximately 3 years. We have never been happier! Meg is not only a highly skilled and accomplished rider, but her teaching skills are far superior to anyone I've come into contact with. She is dedicated, patient, calm, and very accommodating to all--regardless of rider experience. Her passion for teaching and love of horses is obvious the moment you walk into her arena. If you have the opportunity to work with Meghan, RUN to her barn! You will not be disappointed."
