Laura VanderVliet Eventing Relocates to Louisiana

August 31, 2010 Off By Roberta Johnston

Jennifer Mosing, Maurice, Louisiana and Laura VanderVliet Eventing, Nottingham, Pennsylvania are pleased to announce that, effective August 1, 2010. VanderVliet’s eventing operations will be based at Mosing’s Sterling Silver Stables in Maurice.

Mosing owns several top event horses, including Pawlow, an 11-year-old gelding competed by Will Faudree and short-listed for the U.S. squad for the World Equestrian Games this fall. She was one of the first patron and owner members of the Professional Riders Organization. With the establishment of Sterling Silver Stables, Mosing began pursuing the development of a world-class equestrian center in Louisiana. The completely renovated facility that resulted has set the stage for bringing a top professional into her operation.

VanderVliet, who currently competes at the advanced level with the syndicated Mighty Mangaroo and Kathleen Overbaugh’s King Billy, has moved all her competition horses to Sterling Silver Stables and will pursue her competitive career from there. A former assistant trainer for Scott Hassler at Hilltop Farm and Phillip Dutton at True Prospect Farm, VanderVliet has operated her own eventing business since 1998. During this period she successfully competed such upper-level horses as Irish Fling, Topspin, and Warrie Hill. In her work with Mosing, VanderVliet will be responsible for the stable’s instruction and coaching program and for the training and development of horses owned by Sterling Silver Stables and its clients.

“I won’t change much about my competition plans this year,” said VanderVliet. “Keep an eye out for me, some Cajun food, and some fun at the big East Coast events this fall.”
