Anne Brzezicki, Head Coach

Anne is the director of equine laboratory classes at MTSU. If you come to the Horse Science Center, she's probably teaching one of the riding labs or an eq team lesson. Anne grew up riding hunters in Connecticut and graduated from UConn. After graduating, she coached the National Huntseat Champion Team in 1972. She came to MTSU in 1976, and started an equestrian team in 1977. She helped develop a new IHSA region and helped introduce Western Horsemanship into the IHSA. In 1979, Anne taught at Virginia Tech and began their equestrian team as well.

Anne returned to MTSU in 1989 and has since coached the Equestrian Team to numerous Regional and Zone championships in both Huntseat and Western as well as the Reserve Champion Western Team, as well as the High Point Wester Rider in the nation, Sarah Elder.

In 2003, Anne recieved the Lifetime Achievement Award from the IHSA and in 2004, she was named IHSA Regional Coach of the Year.

Needless to say, the MTSU Equestrian team is both proud and blessed to have Anne Brzezicki as their head coach.

Faye Lynn Coffey, Assistant Coach

“Get in there and RIDE," is Faye Lynn's trademark advice to her students. Her easy going nature, natural talent and life long experience in the horse industry makes Faye Lynn one of the Walking Horse industry's most respected equitation coaches, not to mention that she has coached many Celebration Equitation Champions over the past ten years as a Walking Horse instructor.
Deciding on a college to attend, Faye Lynn found her niche close to home at Middle Tennessee State University. She is a horse science alumni that we are very proud of.

As a Reserve IHSA National Champion and youth champion, Faye Lynn knew success before she went into the world of coaching. Now she finds happiness in the success of her students.

Faye Lynn has been a coach for the MTSU Equestrian Team since Fall 2002, and has helped carry the team to national success. In addition to her success as an IHSA coach, she has been named one of the top three equitation coaches in the Walking Horse industry.

"It takes a real rider to be successful in the Intercollegiate competitions and a lot of desire and commitment," says Faye Lynn. She enjoys coaching the team because of her past experience with IHSA and the rewards it brings the students.

Jessica Schultz, Assistant Reining Coach

Jessica is not only the Horse Science barn manager but a two time IHSA National Champion. Jessica graduated from the MTSU Horse Science program in 2001. In her senior year at MTSU, her judging team won the American Quarter Horse Congress Judging Contest.
Jessica’s teaching style has been described as “putting herself in the rider’s place” and is enjoyed by many of her students. She is able to effectively teach huntseat, horsemanship, and reining.
Without Jessica, we wouldn’t be as organized for horse shows, and wouldn’t have the impeccable horse care we do. She takes such good care of the school horses.
