Hunter Ridge Farm is owned and operated by Robert and Kris Bragg. Their daughter, Tiffany Bragg Kopp is the resident manager and trainer. Together they oversee the day-to-day care and training of the 24 horses residing at Hunter Ridge Farm.
Tiffany Bragg Kopp has been riding since she was 6 years old and has been teaching lessons for 9 years. She has experience teaching riders of all levels in hunters and equitation. She has ridden with top trainers in Hunter/Jumpers and Dressage. She is a firm believer that you never stop learning so she continues her education through participating in lessons and clinics.
In 2002, Tiffany graduated high school and continued her education at the University of Akron majoring in Early Childhood Development. Every weekend she came home to help maintain the farm, ride and help other members of the farm. She was also a member of the University of Akron Equestrian Team. In 2003 and 2004 Tiffany Qualified for the IHSA National Finals.
In 2004, Tiffany traveled to Vechta, Germany to ride at the State Equestrian College Weser-Ems in Vehcta. During that time she rode Jumpers, Dressage and Eventing. Tiffany received the Trainer C license, as well as licensure in Lunging, Horse Management and Riding. Though the program left little time for sight seeing, Tiffany had the opportunity to attend the Oldenburg Horse Auction in Vechta as well as tour many Oldenburg breeding farms.
In 2006, Tiffany started the Tuscarawas Interscholastic Equestrian Team, which is affiliated with the Interscholastic Equestrian Association. She served as regional president for Zone 5 region 1 from 2008-2010 seasons. Tiffany is a very active member in the IEA and looks forward to helping assist in the growth and organization of the IEA in Zone 5. The Tuscarawas Equestrian Team has taken home numerous champions and reserve champions, but most recently in 2012 the team was Zone 5 Region 1 Champion Upper School team.
Starting in 2008, Tiffany and Hunter Ridge Farm added a small breeding program. Tiffany has raised 5 foals since then and enjoys every aspect of breeding, foaling and raising youngsters. They look forward to expanding the breeding program in the future.
Tiffany enjoys working closely with her riders and horses to achieve personal goals. Her training program has a strong emphasis on equitation and basic dressage. Through her program her riders take with them the ability to be confident, have good horsemanship and good stable management.
Tiffany and her husband Seth reside close by the farm. On October 12th 2011 they welcomed their first child, Kamden Robert Kopp into the world.
