Co-Host Wendy Ying, DVM:
Wendy competes her sportcobs in combined and pleasure driving as singles, pairs, tandems, fours and has been known to drive a unicorn! She also fox hunts with South Creek Hounds and shows in ridden dressage.
Wendy has a lifetime of horse experience and grew up riding hunters with Pam Hunt in New England, then received her colors from the Los Altos Hounds while completing her under graduate degrees in Molecular Biology and Chemistry from San Jose State University. She imported, bred and trained Registered Irish draughts and RID sport horses in North Carolina and Virginia while completing her DVM from NCSU and her Traditional Chinese Medicine degrees from Chi Institute. She started driving a single pony and was instantly hooked on driving so all the young horses had to ride and drive. Click here for some pictures of our Wysiwyg sportcobs with their happy owners. Wendy has national titles in both combined and pleasure driving and also enjoys recreational driving.
She currently resides in Sarasota, Florida and is a veterinarian at 5 Elements for Animals, a mobile traditional Chinese veterinary medicine practice. She offers acupuncture, herbal therapy, food therapy, laser therapy and nutritional and wellness consults for companion and farm animals and is branching out to exotics and marine mammals. In conjunction with Panacea Chiropractic, we offer sport horse and rider body works clinics and family (humans and pets) harmony clinics at your barn and/or home.

In 2011, Wendy partnered up with Tremont Farm (Gold medalist – Randy Cadwell and FEI team driver – Keady Cadwell) in Southern Pines, North Carolina. They are helping her achieve her driving goals with lightness and harmony. Randy and Keady, along with Southern Pines’ resident horse whisperer, Alfonz Hargrove, train a select few quality sport cobs for Wendy each year for riding and driving. In addition to the Wysiwyg sport cobs, Tremont Farm has high quality, well trained horses and ponies for combined driving, pleasure driving and ridden dressage, eventing and fox hunting. You can also follow them on Facebook for the latest happenings from the shows here and in Europe.
