Cortney Schafer has been involved with horses all of her life. Mainly owning and showing Arabians and Half Arabians, Cortney has competed at the regional and National level since the age of 11. She has had experience with many other breeds of horses as well. She started showing at the age of 2 and has experience in Saddle Seat, Hunt Seat, Western, Driving, and Halter. She has worked beside many top trainers in the Arabian industry including Joel Kiesner, Shan Wilson, Rob Bick, Caralyn Schroter, and Dan Whitt.
In 2007 Cortney moved to Tennessee to work along side Joel Keisner working with some of the finest English pleasure Arabian horses in the industry. There she broke, started, and trained horses until the end of the 2011 show season.
In 2012 Cortney worked as assistant trainer to Mike Wahl of Wahl International/Mike Wahl PerformanceHorses, who introduced her to the Morgan Horse. She instantly fell in love with the Morgan's personality and intelligence. She trained all of the English Morgans, Saddlebreds, and Hackney Ponies that came into training.
In 2012 at her first Morgan Grand National/World Championship show Cortney brought home the title of 3 Year Old English Pleasure World Champion!
CRS Training Center is currently accepting horses into training at this time.
