Katherine Coleman is originally from New Orleans but has been living and riding abroad in England for the last seven years. This is the second year that Coleman has wintered in Florida, and she kicked off the winter season by winning the Ocala Jockey Club International Three-Day Event’s inaugural CCI3* division earlier this month aboard Monte Classico (Monte Bellini x W-Sally), her own 9-year-old German Sport Horse gelding, on a final score of 39.5.
