Nicole Dicorti Bush
Owner, Head Trainer
Nicole DiCorti Bush began riding at the age of 10 in Santa Cruz County. As a junior, she rode any horse that was available as well as showed in the jumpers and equitation with her own horse under the tutelage of Dick Widger. Nicole graduated from Lake Erie College (Painesville, OH) in 2010 where she received a degree in Equine Entrepreneurship and a minor in Business Administration. While attending Lake Erie, she was an active member of Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) all four years. Nicole rode as a working student for Denize Borges while home on school breaks and still has an active professional relationship with her. Post college, Nicole briefly worked at a sales barn outside of Hamburg, Germany followed by taking an assistant position at McIntosh Stables (Portola Valley, CA) where she managed the day to day training and care of the stable’s home and show team through 2012.
In the fall of 2012, Nicole set off on her own to develop DiCorti Bush Equestrian. Over the years her program has grown into a successful show, sales and lesson barn with a fantastic group of riders of all ages. With a variety of hunter, jumper and equitation riders, she is very proud to run a program that she herself would want to ride in!
At age 13, Kelsey Fey started riding in a lesson program directed by Denize Borges. It was here that Kelsey met Nicole who was riding as a working student. Under Denize's tutelage Kelsey successfully navigated her junior career. Kelsey received her degree in Equestrian Studies from the Savannah College of Art and Design where she competed on their #1 Nationally Ranked equestrian team. While attending SCAD, Kelsey built her resume working for people like the talented Jenny Williams of Lasalle Stables, the legendary Patty Rogers of Lochmoor Stables, and the Robert's family of the World Equestrian Center in Ohio. Post graduation, Kelsey followed her passion to Holland, where she worked for Stal Julian Kraaij. Kelsey now enjoys starting her professional career under the guidance and support of Dicorti Bush Equestrian.
