My name is Samantha Holechek. Originally from Kansas City (go Chiefs!), I grew up and am currently living in Lincoln Nebraska. My love for horses started at a young age and while I took a short break during high school to pursue competitive swimming, I never lost the desire to work with these amazing animals.
When I was 24 years old, I took a chance and moved to the middle of nowhere Indiana to work for a Grand Prix show jumping trainer. During those two years, I learned more than I could ever have imagined, traveled to some of the most amazing horse venues, and had the experience of a lifetime. Now that I’m back home, I’m learning how to balance a “real job” and being a rider/trainer. I have a love for thoroughbred horses, specifically off the track thoroughbreds, and a desire to help these amazing athletes find new homes after racing.
I have officially been accepted as a trainer for the 2019 TB Makeover by The Retired Racehorse Project. I am so excited to compete and showcase the awesome thoroughbred breed! Look for us at the TB Makeover at the Kentucky Horse Park in October 2019!
