Olympic show jumper Mario Deslauriers, formerly representing Canada, will join Hunter’s Moon Farm in April. Alongside current trainers Pamela Polk and Kevin Kirk, Deslauriers will train students at the full-service hunter/jumper barn located on Long Island’s prestigious Gold Coast.

“We are thrilled to have Mario training at Hunter’s Moon Farm,” noted manager Jennifer Griffin. “I have known Mario for many years, as we are both originally from Canada, so it is familiar and comfortable from the start. He and his family have made their life in New York City and Long Island, so the location of Hunter’s Moon is convenient for them, and overall it’s a great fit for everybody.”

Deslauriers is also excited about the new partnership and is looking forward to a bright future. “We had been thinking about this for a while, and when I came in contact with Jennifer, I thought it was a great idea for us to team up,” he expressed. “I think Hunter’s Moon Farm has a great facility and it’s a great location, so we are very excited.”

“Right now, we are focused on letting people know about the change, as well as finding some new horses and getting some new clients and establishing a new relationship at Hunter’s Moon Farm,” continued Deslauriers. “We are enthusiastic about moving to Hunter’s Moon Farm and beginning to train and develop new horses.”
