Meet Our Staff

Chrissy Rogers

Chrissy Rogers
Head Trainer

Chrissy has been involved in the equestrian world for the majority of her life.  Her riding career began at the early age of two years old with her first pony.  As a child and teen, her development in the horse world continued to grow, aided by family members actively involved with horses and their care.  Riding lessons, horse clinics, and competitions became a common theme in her daily life.  As an adult, these cumulative experiences led to the growth and development of her equestrian business, her skills in horse management, and her understanding of the complex aspects of horsemanship and the art of riding.

Cris Barrerra

Cris Barrerra
Head Groom

Having grown up on a large ranch, working with horses comes as second nature to Cris.  He has been with Woodland Farms for over five years and continues to be a dedicated horseman who takes great pride in the care of our horses.  Cris plays a major part in the health, conditioning, preparation for shows, and general care of our horses and we are so grateful to have him as a part of our team.

Aja Howard

Aja Howard
Assistant Trainer

Aja Howard has been riding since the age of eight and successfully competing on the ‘A’ circuit since the age of nine. Taught by highly regarded trainers such as Victor Hugo Vidal, from a young age. Her knowledge of classical equitation often took her to the winners circle in Hunters, Equitation, Medals and Medal Finals. Now she takes her many years of show experience and passes it along to her students, who continue to succeed in the show ring themselves.
