Ambassador Cienne Warren
Cienne Warren has been an IRH Ambassador since 1995 when she wore her first helmet in the Lead-line division at the Monmouth County Horse Shows in Freehold NJ.
At 9 years old, Cienne decided she wanted to commit to her riding education. She moved up the local ranks from the Mini’s, Short Stirrup, Pre-Children’s, and Children’s Hunters/Equitation, finishing her Jr. Amateur riding career with 2 years in the “Big Eq”.
Cienne stayed loyal to IRH, the company that had kept her safe riding ponies, graduating to horses, and now in the most competitive 3’6” Jr. Equitation Division in the industry. It was a big decision, and there was always a lot of peer pressure to wear the brands that made an equitation rider fit into that “Cookie Cutter Look”. Cienne successfully qualified and competed in all of the Equitation Finals in her last year as a Junior Equitation rider in the IRH.
In 2013 Cienne partnered with Fabius, a 10 year old Holsteiner Gelding, who brought her up the ranks in the Jumpers. Cienne continued to ride in the IRH helmets, upgrading with the trends, but always loyal to her brand. In her final year of consistently competing Fabius, she rose up the levels to compete in the Medium Amateur-Owner 1.30m/1.35m Jumpers through 2016.
Later in 2016 Cienne made the move from her hometown Tinton Falls, NJ to reside full time in Ocala Florida. She took a short break to begin her “Adulting” life, and many changes of path occurred for her during the next few years.
Fabius became Mom’s new dressage horse, and Cienne rode and competed a variety of horses for her trainer Anna Gansaur of Kandor Farm in Ocala.
By 2021, Cienne realized she needed a new Equine Partner in her life and found her new guy, a Selle Francais Gelding Capryss de Vy.
Capryss and Cienne are having fun getting to know each other, showing all around Ocala, and promoting helmet safety as an Ambassador for IRH helmets.
