Andrew McConnon

Andrew grew up surrounded by horses on his family's farm in Acton, MA. His more formal riding education started with an introduction to Marc Donovan at age 14. Riding lessons eventually led to becoming a working student and moving to Marc's farm in Southern Pines, NC, in 2004.

After several years working for, and being trained by, Marc while also competing around the eastern US, in 2011, Andrew struck out on his own, moving to Robert Costello's Tanglewood Farm in Southern Pines, NC. Andrew continued to ride with Robert, a former US Olympic team member.

In 2016, Andrew moved to England to work as a rider for British Olympic team member and former FEI World #1 Event Rider, William Fox-Pitt, at his Wood Lane Stables. After 2 years and 50 competitions with 10 horses he moved back to the US to continue to pursue his goals.

“The Carolina Horse Park is particularly important to me as I first visited the grounds in 2002 and have watched the Park grow tremendously. Having competed at my first Training level horse trial, first AEC through to my first CCI4*-S placing and International win in the 2019 CCI2*-S.”

Currently, Andrew is competing and importing several young talented horses and McConnon Eventing is now based out of Tallwoods Farm in Vass, NC.
