Get to know Julie Welles- The Daughter Of One Of Our Own
01/22/2018 12:32 PM

When EQUILINE rider Laura Kraut receives an exciting new prospect, she knows she has the perfect rider to develop it. Julie Welles is Kraut’s main rider, developing the two-time Olympic gold medalist’s horses in both America and in Europe. She divides her time between Laura and Nick Skelton’s bases in Wellington, FL, and Warwickshire, England, and for the first time this winter, she will also spend a concentrated amount of time showing in Spain on the world-renowned Sunshine Tour.

 

Welles, a top junior rider before working for fellow EQUILINE rider Lauren Hough and then moving her tack to Kraut’s operation, had one of her best seasons to date in 2017. She was twice a winner with the Stars and Stripes’ 8-year-old Zangersheide mare Caelle and triumphed in the 7-year-olds with Pat Hales’ SFS Vincomte at the Costa del Sol Equestrian Tour in Mijas (ESP) in October; she also earned top ribbons in Europe throughout the summer on the Stars and Stripes’ Andretti S and rode Old Willow Farms’ Viper Vrombautshoeve Z in Grand Prix competition at Megeve (FRA) and Crans-Montana (SUI), both CSI 3* events.

 

It’s hard to find a rider more enthusiastic about or devoted to her job than Welles, whose true love for both the horse and her time in the saddle is apparent in every conversation and by simple observation in the barn and at the ring. Proudly representing the EQUILINE brand herself, she reveals just how she got every rider’s dream job and her most exciting prospects in EQUILINE’s latest blog installment:
