Logan began her riding career at the mere age of 2, winning her first leadline class at the prestigious Fairfield County Charity Horse Show. Growing up with ponies in the backyard made riding always come before homework.
Training with her mother Sally Vita Allison, along with Kip Rosenthal, Donna Pace and Sarah Weaver, to name a few; made Logan a rider that has many accolades to her name. At the age of 15, Logan received the horse that would change her riding career forever. The 6 yr old 17 hand TB gelding, came into the family from the eventing world where he was bred and trained by former Olympian: Torrance Walkinson. Together Logan and her horse, The Original, competed in everything from the hunters to the big eq. The pair found their “stride” in the Equitation ring where they enjoyed many medals and any fence that could be “sliced”.
Logan and The Orignal a.k.a “Lolo” qualified for many CHJA and CHSA Finals, frequently ending up as Grand Champion or Reserve Champion. She also accumulated numerous year-end championships until she hung up her show coat at 18. It was in Logan’s last year as a junior rider that she followed in her mother’s footsteps thus becoming the Top Equitation Rider in the State. It was then that Sally had the honor to present her daughter with the same Equitation Championship award that she had won 32 years earlier. (a very special family moment)
After a very successful junior career, Logan went to Hartwick College in Oneonta, N.Y. She dabled in the IHSA and then decided to turn professional and started training young Hanoverians. She graduated in 2011 with a dual degree in Business Marketing & Communications. Logan currently lives in Boston but can still be found by her mother’s side at shows; tuning up horses and coaching students.
Logan brings over 20+ years of equine experience into her unique teaching style. She has been called “a perfectionist” and an excellent communicator that builds confidence, a competitive drive, along with good sportsmanship to make her students very successful.
