Mary Tamburri

Vermont Summer Festival 2001

Mary's main focus has been in the Hunter/Jumper world although she has also worked with classically trained Dressage instructors as well as Eventers.

Mary obtained her Massachusetts instructors license while studying Animal Science at UMASS Amherst in 1999. Since then she has been teaching at farms all over Worcester County as well as New York and Georgia.

With over 25 years of experience working with and showing horses Mary has done everything from starting young horses to showing on the A Circuit along the entire East Coast.

When she was young she worked for anyone who would give her time in the saddle on any horse in any discipline while lessoning as often as she could at a prominent Hunter/Jumper barn in Sterling , MA . She began showing on the A circuit in 1992 with many wins in the Hunter, Equitation and Jumper rings over the years. The majority of her junior career was spent as a working student, apprenticing under and lessoning with Linda Langmeier out of Connecticut.

She continued working and riding for Linda through college while she earned her Equine Studies degree all the while competing in the jumper ring and USET talent searches. After college she went to work for Linda and her husband as their full time barn manager, rider and an instructor for the next couple of years.

In 2001 she struck out on her own running her family's farm in New York , teaching beginner through advanced students. A number of those students earned top awards in their Regional and District Finals, as well as Year-End Championships in Short Stirrup, Open Junior Equitation, Children/Adult Jumpers and Junior A/O Jumpers.

Teaching and Training Philosophy

Mary believes in the importance of teaching the basics of horsemanship whether it be training the horse or teaching a rider. Her philosophy on training horses is "if you respect your horse and do your best for your horse, your horse will respect you and do it's best for you". She has started many young horses, retrained rescues as well as retired thoroughbreds using this thought process with excellent results.

Riders are taught proper horsemanship above all at Mary Go Round Farm starting from the ground up. Proper handling, grooming and tacking is done prior to beginning any ride. She believes in giving riders a very secure foundation from which to develop their abilities in the saddle. Her viewpoint on instructing is that "greatness on the flat is the key to greatness over fences". Once you've achieved an understanding of the horse, good balance and position you should be capable of anything from jumping to dressage movement to safe travels on the trails.
