Dressage Rider/Trainer & Mom

Philesha Chandler

A rider and trainer who specializes in dressage, Philesha focuses on the finer details of flatwork.

Philesha started riding when she was eight years old. She trained and competed in hunter/jumpers, eventing, and dressage before finally settling on dressage at the age of 15. She’s now primarily a dressage rider but occasionally trains hunter/jumper horses as well. She first discovered R.J. Classics after being introduced to the brand at Spectrum Saddle Shop. Philesha built her relationship with R.J. over time, even modeling in the Spring 2022 lifestyle photoshoot before being asked to officially join the team!

“I love the R.J. Classics brand, not just for myself but for my daughter and clients. It’s nice to have such a broad range of colors and sizes to choose from so everyone can find something they like. I love that I can wear their sun shirts and breeches year-round in the Florida weather. Whether it’s sunny, chilly, or rainy, R.J. Classics has me covered. The breech material allows me to work a full day and still look presentable, even if I’ve been sweating or got soaked by the rain. I also love their adorable options for my daughter, Avi, who is following in my footsteps. It’s certainly nice to color coordinate with her from time to time as well!”
