Briana Atwell- Becoming a Horseperson First- 2KGrey Ambassador
Understanding. It’s about listening first. That is what our latest 2KGrey ambassador, Briana Atwell celebrates. Known as a quiet but tactful rider and trainer, she understands that in order to communicate best with her horses and students, you must listen to their needs first. At 2KGrey, providing that kind of support to others is what we are all about. We believe that together, there is nothing we cannot do.
Briana Atwell is an FEI level dressage rider and trainer based in Aberdeen, NC. Her 25 year riding career started out in pony club where she worked her way to the upper levels of eventing. After a knee injury forced her to stop eventing; Briana discovered her true passion, dressage. Now she operates a busy training program with a full show schedule. She is a USDF bronze and silver medalist, and has won multiple high score and year-end awards through the I1 level as well as top placings at regional championships. Her program focuses on developing both horses and students that are confident and successful as they progress towards their goals. She loves helping students become thinking riders who understand both the how and why in training. While she enjoys working with all types of horses she is particularly drawn to the ones many people find to be difficult, hot and quirky. Through her ability to convey a quiet, tactful but forward ride she is able to build the horse’s confidence and understanding of dressage. Her gentle but steady approach enables them to thrive as they progress through the levels. Moving forward she has her sights set on grand prix as well as making the jump into the international CDI arena.
Briana’s favorite Intrepid product: 2KGrey
“My 2kGrey breeches are my favorites for so many reasons. As someone who basically lives in riding clothes all day every day, I need them to not only look fantastic but also be comfortable and hold up through lots of wear and tear. 2kGrey breeches are so comfortable that I could sleep in them and my pairs that are over a year old still look like new even though they are far from it. The icing on the cake is how fantastic they look outside of the barn. I can hop off a horse and with a quick change out of my tall boots and some body spray I can show up at my daughter’s school functions and not get “the looks” we all know so well. “- Briana Atwell
