Laine started riding when she was two and owned her first pony at age three in Shingle Springs, CA. Before she was out of grammar school, she became a member of US Pony Club where she achieved C1 rating and competing up to training level at area competitions. By age thirteen, Laine knew that she wanted to be a professional so the family moved to Virginia in order to be closer to the “Eventing Mecca.”
To further her education, Laine was a working student for Stephen Bradley and later Phillip Dutton.
She has since represented the United States in the Junior Olympics where she was awarded the Silver Medal twice and the Bronze Medal three times. She was also part of the test event in Hong Kong in 2007 on her horse, Anthony Patch. Laine is working towards representing the United States in further international competitions.
She is also a successful riding instructor in central Virginia. She has a wide array of students in different disciplines and frequently coaches the local Pony Club.
Laine takes pride in bringing up her horses herself, along with help from her mother, Buck Davidson and Kim Severson. She has brought three horses to the **** level, all that she started straight off of the racetrack.
Laine’s other accomplishments include being on the Dean’s List at the University of Virginia, completing the Business Class Accelerated Program at the Robins School of Business at the University of Richmond, and singing the national anthem with her mother at a number of professional sporting events. Laine has also co-founded Brushfire Media with her father and a fellow Business Class Accelerated Program graduate.
Laine has recently gotten involved in the "mudder" races as part of her fitness program and is looking forward to doing more!
