Shane began his riding career at the age of 4. Showing locally and stabling his horses at home, he learned the essentials of horsemanship. As a junior, he competed in the equitation and jumpers under the instruction of the renowned Mark Jungherr and Kristi Smith. He had a very successful career as an amateur showing extensively up and down the East Coast.
To start his professional career, Shane taught beginner lessons in Connecticut discovering the basics of instruction. His reputation grew within the industry and he was given the opportunity to work under nationally acclaimed rider Jen Alfano of SBS Farms, Inc. From there, he opened his own equestrian operation named Evermoor LLC.
At Evermoor LLC, Shane handles the training and showing of all horses and competitors at every level, coaching many to the winner’s circle. In addition to winning numerous hunter derby, Zone 1, and year end championships, many of his riders have qualified for local finals such as MHC, MHJ, NHHJA, and Downeast; regional finals such as NEEC; and national finals such as USEF Pony Finals, The National Children's Medal, Ariat Medal finals, Maclay finals, and USEF Junior Medal Finals.
Furthermore, Shane has recently become the Head Coach of the Tufts University Equestrian Team. Under his guidance, the team won numerous ribbons in addition to placing tenth at the ISHA National Finals.
