About Lori Wolgemuth
Lori Wolgemuth joined the Graemont team in 1987 moving her base of
operation from Bloomsburg to Lancaster, PA. The couple was married in
January (the only time of year when horse people have time to do things
like get married). Like Steven, Lori's talent was discovered early in her
life. At age 21 Lori had already shown successfully
through the AHSA levels, been a devoted student under several of the country's
top dressage professionals, and competed at the FEI level in the US Continental
Young Rider Championships. With a rich childhood immersed in
dressage, Lori and her devoted "horse show parents" (Ron and
Jackie Novak) were well networked in the Northeastern USA riding
Since that time, Lori, a USDF bronze and silver medallist, has brought
along several horses through the FEI levels and has been the backbone of
Graemont's successful training and lesson program. She earned her BA
in Business administration from Elizabethtown College in 1996.
Wolgemuth is credited for training Felix (pictured right) who went on to win at Dressage at Devon
(4th level) in 1995. Lori turned heads in West Palm Beach in 1998
riding down center line on 17.2 hand trakehner mare (pictured above) that she trained to
the FEI levels. This mare put in some excellent performances and
attracted offers from some of the country's top professionals.
Lori has a unique ability to take a horse from the lower levels and
really broaden its basics through Prix St. George. One recent
example of Lori's skill is Josien (currently competing under Jan
Brons). Lori put some excellent basics on this mare that Jan
could quickly build on to create one of the top PSG/ Intermediare horses
competing in USA this year. Lori is also credited for her part in
the training and developing of USET long listed stallion Graf Goetz.
Today, Lori rides several horses a day, and works double time as trainer at
Graemont Farm in Manheim, PA and as mommy to three sons: David, Michael and
"I really enjoy working with the quality
horses that we import. Each one has its special talents and teaching me
something new. I love that about riding. I also enjoy seeing each
horse find just the right home."
