About Lynne

“A true horsewoman does not look at the horse with his eyes, he looks at her horse with his heart.”~ Author Unknown


Lynne Beegle-Gebhard embodies what it means to be a true horsewoman. Riding since the age of 2, she has devoted her life to horses and the sport. Lynne comes from a highly accomplished equestrian family. Her mother, Jean Rittenour Beegle was a champion saddle bred rider and breeder and started the Ohio State Riding Program. When her family moved to Virginia, Jean became a fixture in the fox hunting community. Lynne’s interest developed throughout her show career as a child of 5, continuing through high school, college, professional, and adult amateur levels. Lynne was recruited by Southern Seminary as a National Champion and rode with fellow teammate, Beezie Madden at the Virginia Intermont College where she studied Equine Management. After graduation, she and Beezie were hired by Elizabeth Burk where Lynne worked as a trainer. As a professional rider, Lynne was coached by Olympic show jumpers, Joe Fargis and Dennis Murphy Sr. and won such accolades as Modified Jumper Champion in Virginia on Silver and Gold as well as National Reserve Champion in the Arabian Hunter Series with Fox Meadow Farm.

Apart from riding, Lynne enjoys and excels as a coach and trainer. Utilizing her teaching degree from the University of Virginia, Lynne has built a solid training and coaching facility at Brookhill Farm. She has produced professional riders as well as National and Reserve Champion riders at the college level. Lynne also enjoys coaching adult amateur and beginner riders and has produced many successful riders at the local and regional levels. Her friendly, no nonsense approach puts anyone at ease while building the confidence her riders need to succeed. Lynne’s heart, drive, experience, and knowledge as a rider, trainer, competitor, and coach make Brookhill one of the best equine facilities of its class.
