Noah has been actively involved in the dressage world for the past 20 years. In the early 2000’s, he successfully competed his young horse Espionage to win the ODS Futurity, Training & First Level State Championships, and a 7th Place finish in the GAIG/USDF Region 6 Championships. In 2016, Noah took over DevonWood Equestrian Centre as General Manager of his family’s venue in Sherwood, OR.
As a USEF Level 4 Show Manager and Secretary, Noah is responsible for leading the licensed events that take place at DevonWood and several other shows across the country. Noah is also currently serving a four-year term as a member of the USEF Dressage Sport Committee.
Noah is most passionate about growing the sport and helping others advance in the competition arena or as licensed officials. He actively mentors new show management staff and helps grow talent wherever possible. In 2019, Noah was recognized by the Oregon Dressage Society with the Teresa Dunlap Award for being the person who has done the most to further dressage in Oregon.
Most people would recognize Noah’s voice before anything else as he travels from coast-to-coast announcing at many of the nation’s premier competitions including USEF Festival of Champions, Global Dressage Festival, Dressage at Devon, the Tokyo 2020 US Olympic and Paralympic Observation Events, and Equine Affaire/Fantasia.
When he’s not announcing or managing horse shows, Noah is also a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer and always finds time to sneak in a dive wherever his travels take him.
