Coach Katherine Deichmann


Katherine was born saying “up down, up down” and was in a backpack teaching with her mom at one week old. She was riding by herself on her first pony, Bubba, when she was two years old, and started showing at age five. She has continued managing and teaching at Hunters Chase and winning in the show ring ever since. She did her first Grand Prix in June of 2013 and placed very respectively with her horse “Catch 22” aka “Cas.” Katherine has competed with major success in the IHSA Alumni division, winning the Alumni Over Fences division at National Finals in 2015 and placing 10th in the same division at Nationals in 2016. Katherine attended Kansas State University where she rode on their NCAA and IHSA equestrian teams. She took over as coach of the Texas State Equestrian Team in 2014, and the team has improved tremendously ever since! She has taken clinics with reputable equestrians such as George Morris, Greg Best, Don Sachey, Kris Nixon, and Rheinard A Dorshe, and ridden under coaches Marylaura Doherty of TX (mother), the late Steve Hummel of TX, Gardner Powell of GA/KS, Ann White of KS, and Charles McDaniel of TX. Katherine lives in Wimberley with her boyfriend of 8 years, Tyler Bloom, and her two children—Lauren, 5, and Harrison, 1. We are so grateful to have her as a coach and learn from her every day. We love you Katherine!
