Once she graduated from Goucher, Karli returned to her home state of California and began life as an equestrian professional. During her time working under the tutelage of Lesley Bulecheck at Cross Creek Fam in Malibu, California, Karli developed a love of teaching. It is at Cross Creek Farm that Karli became more familiar with showing on the ‘A’ circuit.
Currently a rider at Brookway Stables for Archie Cox, Karli spends most of the year traveling to horse shows throughout California. Karli and the team at Brookway Stables end the year with the indoor circuit showing in Maryland at Capital Challenge, Harrisburg for the Pennsylvania National Horse Show and Washington D.C for, her favorite, the Washington International Horse Show.
