Lindsay Archer (Professional)

Hunter/ Jumper Director

After growing up riding in Northern California, my husband and I started Shady Lane Farm, a successful training stable in the SF East Bay. We focus primarily on jumpers, but we also breed a few young horses every year. We value both top-level competitions as well as an affordable way to start young horses and riders. I am motivated to be on the PCHA board to give back to our horse community that has given me so much over the past 20 years. I believe that we live in one of the most beautiful places in the world, and we have the potential to host some of the best horse shows in the world. I hope that through PCHA, we can work to promote better sport as well as work to make the entry-level end of our sport more affordable.
