1601B_katherine rich elzig_TD spotlightKatherine has been involved in the Arabian horse industry her entire life. As part of the third generation of her family’s Arabian horse business, she gladly carries the torch that was lit over sixty years ago, as a breeder, owner and trainer.

Located in the beautiful “Valle de Los Caballos” nestled in the heart of the Temecula wine country, Katherine co-owns Green Acres Ranch, Inc. along with her mother, Margaret Rich, an esteemed coach and International judge, and her brother, renowned cow horse trainer Roy Rich.

Katherine earned countless Regional and National titles as a Youth rider under the tutelage of many well-known coaches in the Arabian industry. In 2004 she gave up her Amateur status and became a professional Arabian trainer. In addition to training National caliber show horses, and earning her USDF bronze, silver and gold medals, Katherine coaches adults and youth riders to Regional and National titles every year.

After years of attending college at night, in 2010 Katherine graduated from the University of Redlands with a Bachelor of Science in Business and Management, and promptly put her college skills to work. Katherine truly enjoys owning and running her business from the ground up.

In 2011 Katherine was licensed by USEF with an “r” Arabian judge’s card and also had the privilege of marrying her long-time friend and now business partner, Tyler Elzig. Katherine and Tyler have embarked on the adventure of a lifetime, navigating the ins and outs of the Arabian horse industry.

Katherine and Tyler reflect on all the memories made throughout the season and are very proud of how the countless hours spent at the barn and in the show ring have paid off. Actions speak louder than words and hard work produces results in the best possible way!
