In the Saddle

Rylee Gailey is a 23-year-old rider that has successfully competed through the 2*/Intermediate level of Eventing. Rylee began riding at the age of 4 and now has over 20 years of experience. Originally from a small town in Georgia, Rylee now owns and operates an equine facility in the heart of the horse capital of the world.


Rylee is currently focusing on her main boy, Dukes Up and raising our homebred babies. Duke is Rylee's upper-level partner that she brought back from a suspensory injury in 2018. After 2 very long years of rehab, Duke and Rylee have earned the nickname "comeback kids" after successfully being brought back to the highest levels of eventing. More information can be found about our breeding program on the "breeding & horses for sale" tabs.

Rylee has trained under the guidance of top eventing and dressage riders, including well-known Olympians. Rylee would not be where she is without her amazing dressage trainer, Barend Heilbron, and her eventing coach, Jonathan Holling. They are both patient and methodical with their teaching which is important to her in a trainer.

In the Classroom

Rylee spends just as much time pursuing her degree as she does in the saddle, and she is looking forward to the next few years of her career. Rylee graduated Cum Laude from the University of Florida with her Bachelors in Animal Biology, Equine Specialization. She is now back at the University of Florida, pursuing her Doctorate in Veterinary Medicine with which she plans to focus on Equine Sports Medicine & Theriogenology.

Rylee's passion for veterinarian medicine shined through after she spent a diligent 2+ years rehabbing Dukes Up after his suspensory injury. Spending more time in the industry and reaping the reward showed her that is where her passion and heart are. Rylee eventually has aspirations to focus solely on equine reproduction, but for now, has fun breeding top-quality connemaras here at Peachstone Farm.

  • Golden Key Student (Top 15% in her UF class)
