Meghan Roider Humphreys


Meghan Roider Humphreys grew up in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, where she started riding at the age of six. She spent her childhood at the barn developing a love for horses and learning everything she could about the hunter/jumper discipline. During her junior years, she competed regularly around Louisiana and Mississippi. She trained and sold several horses as a teenager and catch rode everything she had the chance to. If she was unable to compete herself, Meghan still would tag along to every horse show to groom and gain experience. Meghan started working for the LSU Horse Unit when she was 15 years old and worked there for seven years. She learned a lot from her boss, Randy Wright, about treating, medicating, giving IV and IM shots, and other horse husbandry.

Meghan attended LSU, where she studied business and minored in animal science. While in college, she continued to compete and started teaching beginner lessons at MMS Show Stables. After graduating, she was selected to be a working student at Silver Fox Farms in Wimberley, Texas for the summer. She was offered a job as assistant trainer there, which gave her many opportunities to expand her knowledge on breaking and training young horses, teaching lessons of higher levels, and competing on a much bigger scale. Meghan then moved to St. Louis, Missouri to work for Kennedy Farms, where she competed at venues such as Wellington and Vermont, and also took multiple clients to both schooling and A rated horse shows. While at Kennedy Farms, she did many things around the barn including putting horses on the VibePlate, which encouraged her to purchase her own Theraplate that she has now.

Wanting to be closer to home, Meghan moved to Mississippi to be the assistant trainer at Winterview Farm. She loves teaching lessons of all levels, taking clients to horse shows, and competing on young, green horses. Meghan and her husband, Daniel, attend the Lebanon Presbyterian Church every Sunday, when Meghan isn’t away at a horse show. Daniel can be found around the barn or at shows helping out in whatever way he can.

He has taken multiple kids to their first A rated shows and is currently used and shown in a prestigious barn in Bridgehampton, NY. Her childhood pony, “Harry Potter,” has been leased out all over the country, won many top ribbons at shows, and most recently brought a rider from learning to canter to winning at Short Stirrup at A Rated Shows in just a year! Potter is now a part of the lesson program at Winterview.
