Alice Lang-Runzi  
Trainer
Alice was born in Louisville, Kentucky and raised in Massachusetts. She has developed extensive training skills. She was a Horse Trainer and Barn Manager at Althea Farm and Sharonshire Farm in Massachusetts.
__Alice started riding at age 10, was jumping by age 12, and started competing seriously at 14. Alice believes in Wright Equestrian Center’s Work/Ride Program because she did work/ride to pay for boarding before leaving college.
__ Upon graduating from high school, Alice turned down salary barn manager positions to go away to college. She then put herself through college in Chicago driving carriages, caring for the draft horses, and maintaining the carriages and harnesses.
__As a horse trainer at Wright Equestrian Center, Alice rides the tough horses as well as starts the young horses. Alice also does the hard work and schooling to prep the show horses and owners.
__Alice heads the riding academy program for Wright Equestrian Center students who take horseback riding lessons and prepare for shows—for both those who don’t have a horse of their own as well as those who do.
__Alice is proficient in English Equitation, Hunter/Jumper, and Speed. She is also Wright Equestrian Center’s Equestrian Summer Camp Director.
__In her spare time she adopts abused and neglected horses and rehabilitates them.
