Sylvia Rzepka is training independently out of Western Training Center H&D Schulz Quarter Horses. Sylvia has been associated with horses and equestrian sports all her life. She started riding at the age of 9 and by the age of 12, she began competing.
At the age of 16, she was ready to enter the Open Division and spent a year in the USA. Immediately upon her return she made the decision to become a professional trainer, which is a way of life for Sylvi.
Sylvi became a professional in 1993, she had initially devoted herself exclusively to the sport of cutting from 1997-1998 and she then concentrated entirely on reining in 1999 and became the first woman to win the Open Futurity of the German NRHA. This has been followed by countless victories and top placements in all major events in Europe to this day.
