Elyse Dunbar became an instructor at Shallowbrook in 2005. After having worked for several years in marketing and advertising, Elyse decided to continue to pursue her equestrian career. Elyse’s passion for horses began when she was ten years old in New Cannan, CT and continued through college at Fairfield University. Just a few of Elyse’s equestrian accomplishments include: Fairfield University Female Athlete of the Year, IHSA Nationals 1997 and Regional Champion 1998.
Today, Elyse exudes her positive attitude, high energy, and equestrian knowledge in the ring while teaching students of all ages. Growing up in a school barn similar to Shallowbrook, Elyse also highly believes and teaches the importance of horse care. When not teaching, Elyse can be found riding her horse Irish Mist.
In addition, Elyse assists in the management of Team Y Ride, provides Shallowbrook with Marketing, Public Relations and Event Management consultation, and manages the Birthday Party program.
Elyse lives in Wilbraham, MA with her husband Jamie, daughter Callie, son Padraig, and dog Bailey.
