Team GDE

Alex Kapsner, Full Time Working Student – Alex is a 21 year old working student from Boyceville, Wisconsin.  She started trail riding around the farm at age 10 and then started to pursue Eventing two years later after a neighbor gifted her family a retiring Event horse named Dude.  Alex has since gotten her HB in Pony Club and competed up to Training Level with her OTTB, Fitzgerald.  She also played polo while attending UW-Madison.  Alex spent the majority of the year working for her local vet, where she gained more knowledge about in-depth horse care.  She joined the GDE team from Wisconsin in September 2019 and we are excited to welcome her! Alex is looking forward to further her equine education with GDE and hopes to pursue a career in the equine industry!
Lulu Malinoski, Full Time Working Student – Lulu is a full time working student from Richmond whom Gabby has known for many years through Deep Run Pony Club. She has been riding for 10 years and enjoys the process of bringing horses along from the ground up. She has competed up to the Novice level, and currently owns Coulson, an import she acquired through GDE. She has goals of someday riding and training professionally. Lulu will be working on the GDE team while simultaneously completing her senior year of high school online. She is a hard worker with a big obsession of Limeade and is a joy to have as part of the team!

Arrie Sekreve – Arrie is a very important member of team GDE wearing the hats of both business partner and investor. His former days as a show jumper in the Netherlands strengthen the team’s experience and European network. Arrie is currently working on the build of the future home base of GDE at his private farm in Free Union where he lives with his wife Lindsay, son Gabriel, and multiple goats, dogs and ponies.  Arrie and Gabby began the venture of selling imported horses together in 2019 and are excited for the growth of this side of the business.

Dr. Keith Brady, DVM – Dr. Brady has been a part of Gabby’s team since she began riding with Kim Severson and has been a great mentor and invaluable resource to her as she grows her GDE career.  He is a graduate of Virginia-Maryland Regional College of Veterinary Medicine.

In 2002, Keith co-founded Old Dominion Equine Associates, a practice that has become a well-respected veterinary group.  Dr. Brady is a FEI accredited veterinarian with emphasis on pre-purchase exams and lameness.
