Tyler's professional career started as a riding and management position at HiHopes Farm, LLC under Steve Heinecke and the Oken family promptly after college. Working with some of the top hunters in the country, he discovered his niche in the hunters. Under the tutelage of world-class trainers & R Judges Steve Heinecke (1985 Maclay Champion) and Jeff Wirthman, Tyler gained incredible knowledge and insight in working with top show hunters.
In 2016, Tyler opened W Show Stables in Lexington, KY. His program offered top hunter, jumper & equitation training and showing, coupled with the highest quality horse care only a few miles from the Kentucky Horse Park. In 2018, Tyler won the RRP Thoroughbred Hunter Makeover out of 70+ horses. During that time he worked with a lot of horses and riders, developing his style for teaching and competitiveness in the show ring. He received top ribbons in National Hunter Derby's across the country and his students had much success as well.
In an effort to learn even more about the top level of the sport, Tyler went to work for New Hope, LLC under the direction of David Belford & Christopher Payne. New Hope operates as one of the most successful horse businesses in the country, focused on importing and showing the very best horses in the hunter ring. During his time at New Hope with 40+ top hunters, Tyler learned the process of operating and maintaining a winning system for both horse and rider. He considers this to be the most impactful experience of his professional career.
