Sayer TownsendTrainer & Owner
Horses have been in Sayer’s blood from the moment she was born. Sayer grew up at Cedar Lane Stables in Tomball, Texas. Sayer first started riding there as a young child and then, when in high school, started giving lessons at Cedar Lane. Sayer attended Texas A&M University and graduated with a degree in Animal Science. While at A&M, she was a member of the prestigious Texas A&M Equestrian Team. In 2007, Sayer and her husband, Dustin Townsend, purchased the land at the corner of Jackson Road and 1486 and created Edgebrook Equestrian Center. By taking her extensive riding talents and pairing them with her teaching skills, Sayer is the perfect instructor for both children and adults.
Devon BoulangerAssistant Trainer
Devon grew up in The Woodlands and has been riding since she was a child. She began riding at Carousel Farms (now North Houston Horse Park) and then pursued dressage. She lived in New Hampshire for a period where she competed primarily in the hunter arena. Upon her return to Texas, she continued her training in hunters. Devon is an excellent instructor and works well with kids and adults alike.
Addison RussellWorking Student
Addison began riding at Edgebrook when she was 4 and never lost that initial passion and love for horses. Addison had a successful career in the pony ring qualifying five ponies for Pony Finals between 2019 and 2022. Following her pony career, she decided to venture over to the jumper ring and she now rides her leased horse, Chiquita, in the 1.0 jumpers and equitation. You can find Addison helping at shows, working on exercise rides and assisting in lessons.
Olivia BrustWorking Student
Olivia has done it all from Pony Finals to Junior Hunter Finals. She brings the same intensity and dedication to her work at Edgebrook as she puts into her riding. Olivia competed in her first FEI level event this summer. The Edgebrook family looks forward to cheering her on as she rises in the ranks of nationally recognized jumper riders.
