Katherine Coleman is originally from New Orleans but has been living and riding abroad in England for the last seven years.

Coleman discusses how her partnership with “Monte” has progressed during their three years together, her plans for the winter season with Monte and the rest of her string, and what she's looking towards for 2019.
