Trinity Equestrian is owned and operated by Trina Blankenship.

Trina has been offering equestrian services in the Metro-Atlanta area for two decades, and she is a highly accomplished Hunter /Jumper / Equitation trainer.

A 15+ year member of the USEF (United States Equestrian Federation) and the GHJA (Georgia Hunter Jumper Association), Trina has coached many riders of all ages to many great competitive and personal achievements. With the use of traditional American Forward Seat style, coupled with the balance and collection methods of the European Riding System, and finally merged with Natural Communication through basic Pressure and Release, Trina has developed a unique approach to riding, teaching, and training.

Students and horses under the training and management of her program have gone on to win many Championships at National AA USEF Horse Shows and include Gold and Bronze medalists in the National Pony Jumper Championships, USEF Horse of the Year placings in divisions from Green Pony Hunters to Young Jumpers, Pony Finals Winners and Top-Ten Ribbon Winners, and many GHJA Year-End Ribbon Winners, Reserve, and Grand-Champions. With a patient, well-spoken, good-humored approach, Trina can effectively instill confidence in the youngest or most timid of beginner riders - all the way up to the competitive rider with National competitive goals in mind.

Trina served on the GHJA Board of Directors for 6 years as the Junior Advisor and was the Coordinator and Chef D'Equipe of the Zone 4 National Pony Jumper Team and Jumper Committee.

Trina travels to Germany several times a year for training and horse shopping, as well as organizing European training trips for her students.
