Lisa Anderson is in her first year as the Assistant Coach for the Georgia Equestrian team. Anderson will assist primarily with the development and recruitment of the Hunt Seat riders.
After graduating Cum Laude from Barnard College, Columbia University in New York, Anderson managed her own horse business for over 30 years. During this time, she coached hundreds of top students in both the hunt seat and jumper rings and competed and coached riders in 3 day eventing at the national and international levels.
This is a homecoming of sorts for Anderson, as she operated her own business out of Glory Farm in Alpharetta, Ga. During this five-year span, Anderson competed in and coached at USEF hunter/jumper shows and combined training events from Massachusetts to Florida.
For the past 15 years, Anderson has coached "AA" circuit hunter, jumper and equitation riders from Copper Ridge Farm and Grove Place Farm in Maple Park, IL.
Anderson trained with and was an assistant to Olympic gold medal coach Jack LeGoff at the United States Equestrian Team in South Hamilton, Mass. Under coach Jack LeGoff she spent two years teaching show jumping to event riders attending USET young rider training sessions. Anderson either trained the leading horse or was named the USCTA area-leading rider for 10 consecutive years from 1982-1992. In 1989, she was the sixth leading USCTA rider in the United States.
Anderson is married and has four children.
