Stefhanie Connors, founder and owner of Salty Dawg Equine Services, is an experienced equestrienne. With a background in equitation, she rode in a variety of competitions from local rated shows to prestigious competitions such as Horse Shows in the Sun (HITS) and the Vermont Summer Festival Horse Shows.
When it came to naming the business, Stefhanie turned to her own horse for inspiration. Stefhanie’s first horse was a Holsteiner, and when she named him she wanted a unique name that would stand out in the show ring. Stefhanie named her horse Salty Dawg – “Salty” being a reference to the salt waters of Long Island, where he was from, and “Dawg” because of the horse’s cuddly personality. It was only fitting that the business name be a tribute to the talented equine who took Stefhanie through her junior years of competition.
