Candace Correa | Carlos Gomez | Mario Trejo
Candace Correa began riding at Mill Creek in 1997. Growing up on the East Coast she rode hunter/jumper. At Mill Creek she leased several horses for jumping and eventually transitioned to dressage. After over 12 years of working in marketing for corporations such as The Walt Disney Company, Sears, Eastman Kodak Company and Mattel, she launched her own equestrian gift line called Eliquus. Currently she is the CMO of an internet start-up and is managing the day-to-day finances of Mill Creek. You can email her directly at email@example.com.
Carlos Gomez has worked as Mill Creek’s Stable Manager since 1983. Carlos, who has overall responsibility for property maintenance, takes care of everything from ordering hay and shavings to building new jumps. He ensures that stalls are cleaned daily, all horses are fed appropriately and on schedule and that buildings and fences are promptly repaired. It is through Carlos’ great effort and his competence as a supervisor that our facility maintains its immaculate appearance. Perhaps Carlos’ most appreciated skill, however, is that of keeping our riding arenas so well-groomed. Thanks to his constant care and attention, the rings can often be used during even the rainiest of seasons.
Mario Trejo has been the School Horse Manager at Mill Creek since 1985. In his many years with us, Mario has become a truly knowledgeable horseman. He has primary responsibility for the care and feeding of our high-quality, fine-tempered school horses. Mario’s vigilance guarantees these horses are as healthy and well-mannered as possible. Mario is always available to teach and enforce safe handling procedures to students. He also explains proper grooming, bridling and saddling techniques as well as appropriate care for the horse after a lesson. Mario’s experience and efficiency keep our School Horse program running smoothly.
