About Raegan Comeaux: Raegan Comeaux is the founder and CEO of EMES. After earning her degree in Animal Science with a specialty in Equine Science and a double minor in English and Marketing, she spent 32 years building her training facility. Starting with just 30 untamed acres, Raegan sculpted Double Rainbow into the 148 acre elite training facility it is today. She remains passionate about creating positive change in the hunter/jumper industry to ensure the safety, wellbeing, and education of riders and horses alike.
When Raegan isn’t integrating all the best information into EMES, or training horses and riders, or judging hunters and equitation as a USEF licensed official, she loves spending time with her husband and children, riding her young horse, wakeboarding and slaloming, gardening, reading, and cheering on the New Orleans Saints!
Through EMES, Raegan wanted to offer the hunter/jumper world the opportunity she didn’t have growing up: the ability to learn, train, and advance no matter their location. To find out more about Raegan, you can read about her career, visit her EMES coach’s profile, or reach out to her directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
About Barbara Newtown: Barbara Newtown trained at Yale University as a music historian, but she spent most of her career teaching creative and academic writing at the college level. Before joining Raegan in the EMES project, Barbara wrote profiles (both human and equine) for the regional magazine The Equine Report.
Barbara and her husband George run Newtown Farm, a “Three Star” Oldenburg breeding farm. They won their “stars” for percentage of premium foals, production of an approved stallion, and performance of offspring. Barbara and George are business partners with Olympians Karen and David O’Connor, who train, show, and market Newtown Farm horses. The Newtowns and the O’Connors believe that a horse will let you know what it loves to do: although the humans in this arrangement concentrate on Eventing (the equine triathlon), Newtown horses can be found these days being happy in the hunt field, the hunter ring, the jumper ring, the dressage ring, or, of course, on cross-country.
