Sponsored rider & Barn
Bryce Richardson grew up riding and competing on the West Coast but by the time she reached the end of her teen years her involvement in the sport had taken her from coast to coast and beyond to Europe. It was living and working in Holland in her late teens that gave Bryce the idea to start her business, Quintessence International, a boutique sales barn that specializes in developing young horses for the top levels of the sport, producing quality amateur horses, and acting as a trusted agent for American buyers in the European market all. It would take another 4 years of working in the sport where she retrained off the track thoroughbreds, groomed up to the FEI level, and rode for other sales barns to gain insight and experience before she would open her own doors. After a nearly career-ending injury a year ago, Bryce decided life was too short not to go for her dream; so, she struck out on her own and Quintessence International became a reality. With a summer base in Belgium and a winter base in Ocala, she works to produce and procure horses ideal for the US market and develop her own young horses for the top levels of the sport. She says her business is built on quality horses, hard work, transparency, and never forgetting why we all started in this sport: the love of the horse.
