Michelle Wellman is a certified equestrian professional based in New York City 

After high school she went to the acclaimed Meredith Manor International Equestrian Centre and graduated top of her class. She went on to teach at the Manor for the next 7 years and eventually became head of the farrier program and thereafter the head of the jumping program.

Having always been curious about exploring the world, in 2011 Michelle set off to New Zealand, where she worked with racehorses. She trained never before ridden young steeds to compete in professional racing. 

In 2012 she continued her travels and headed to India where she was asked to be the manager of a pony club in the metropolitan city of Chennai. Over the course of 4 years she brought 'My Pony Club' from a start up to a successful and sought after club in the city with a waiting list and many accolades.
