Maddie Snyder/Snyder Performance Horses
Maddie joined our team in May 2022, and moved her business here to Shady Springs! Maddie specializes in Friesians and crosses, and has been heavily active in the breeding and showing part of the breed for 6 years, but showed on the circuit for the first time 10 years ago.
At 6 yrs old Maddie got her first set of riding lessons. She was hooked and continued to lesson, and clean stalls at the barn she rode at, by 8 yrs old she got her 1st horse, and by the age of 10 they owned 5 Arabian/National Show Horses that they showed locally and regionally. she continued to show throughout school and when she graduated high school she went to college at OSU ATI for Equine Management. After her 1st year, she attended Stachowski Farms in Mantua OH for her internship and loved it so much she never went back to school and stayed at work. after a few years working for other trainers, she decided to start Snyder Performance Horses with her husband Cody in 2016 and the rest is history.
Maddie’s passion is the breeding and training. Matching the perfect mare and stallion, and creating a team between horse and rider is what she thinks is the most rewarding of the job. She would gladly give up her spot in the ring to be on the rail and coach her clients. She strives to make it a fun but educational time and always ready for whats to come next!
