Our trainer - shannon o'hatnick


Classical Training Academy

Presents our Trainer: Shannon O'Hatnick

Shannon comes to us with a wonderful and varied background.

She started as a working student at Benchmark Farm and Broad Hill Run Farm, schooling young horses and learning barn management skills.  It is also where she got the bug for teaching.  Shannon is an enthusiastic and talented training instructor for students of all ages and levels of ability.

Shannon now has many years of experience riding in A-shows, Eventing and Dressage shows, IEA and IHSA.  She is very confident working with problem horses, young horses or competition horses.   And now she is able to pass those skills and knowledge on to her training students here in the Knoxville area!


Shannon was the Head Groom and Barn Manager for Olympian, Lars Petersen and his wife Melissa Taylor who operate a 30 stall dressage training center at Legacy Farms in Florida.  Shannon got to show off her professional management and grooming skills, as well as her amazing artistry with clipping and braiding.

Most Recently

Shannon has been the Assistant Trainer at Bascule Farm LLC, which is a 199 acre, 75 stall horse stable where the instructors teach balanced seat riding based on classical training principals.
