Lori grew up riding Western quarter horses, a habit that continues as our farm still has several quarter horses trying to figure out how to get on our exhibition schedule.  Her professional horse training career started as an apprentice to legendary Hollywood trainer Glenn Randall Sr.  Lori moved into dressage when she accepted a position with the Lipizzaner Stallion Show as a performer and trainer.  Matt and Lori worked together for seven years with the Lipizzaner Show and continued to train together once Matt went out on his own.  Most recently Lori has trained with Olympian Michael Poulin and German Olympic Committee Director of Training, Christoph Hess.  After 20 years with the Lipizzaner Show, Lori began working as a full time trainer with Matt McLaughlin Dressage in September 2011.  Lori’s experience in training haute ecole, grand prix dressage, and reining makes her a strong addition to our training and instruction program.  Her work with passage and flying changes is near genius.  Lori has earned her USDF bronze and silver rider medals.
