Tammy Pratt Paparella is a USDF Bronze Medalist and has competed through the PSG level. She has audited many educational programs to further her understanding, and has also demo rode in USDF Judges programs. She has owned and operated her own breeding farm for many years, where she honed her young horse skills, raising many youngsters from birth to their first steps under saddle. Tammy's current mount is Ana Capri, whom Tammy bred. She has taken this beautiful Golden Olivier daughter and trained her though the FEI movements, and the pair do show a particular talent for Piaffe, Passage, and Pirouettes. She has also trained under Cindi's guidance the Friesian Gelding, Chiavari for owner Amy Lindqvist, since his importation as a four year old, and together they took Top Honors in the NEDA Year End awards at FIrst Level. They look forward to making their second level debut very soon!
Rosebrook Farm chief trainer, Cindi Wylie, is a unique combination of education, achievement, and dedication, seldom seen in the upper levels of dressage these days. She has a passion for knowledge, and takes her education very seriously. The result is a rider who has not only been able to produce champions at the lower levels, but at the FEI levels as well. But she doesn't only work with the upper level riders and horses, but has a large following of riders who simply want to enjoy their riding time more. Her only requirement is that you want to learn! She continually pursues her education through both instructor and judges programs, and also volunteers her free time the the USDF so that she can "give back" to the discipline that's given her so much. To this end, she serves as Chairperson for the USDF GMO committee. The GMO committee helps provide support for the local USDF Group Member Organizations across the country, in hopes of helping them grow in numbers by providing both organizational support as well as educational programs for them to utilize.
Brittany Murphy is a USDF Bronze medalist who has worked extensively with Young Horses both on the ground and under saddle having shown previously through Third Level. She trained extensively with Barend Heilbron an FEI Trainer from Holland. She was the demo rider at a most recent USDF Young Sport Horse Forum in Maine with Scott Hassler and Willy Arts, and taking top honors in Materiale classes with the three year old "Flirt", owned by Shooting Stars Dressage Horses, LLC. Brittany is also currently working with the young approved Hanoverian stallion, "Donarsong", owned by Michael Yates, and bred by Rachel Erlich and Green Gate Farm, who is currently in residence at Rosebrook Farm to help further his basic education. She will be showing both these talented youngsters this summer!
Providing care and training for 30 plus horses is no easy task. Cindi is fortunate to have two assistant trainers, Tammy Pratt Paparella and Brittany Murphy, who are both experienced professionals in their own right, looking to further their training and education under Cindi's watchful eye.
