Will Zuschlag The Carolinas Equestrian 01 Will Zuschlag grew up loving horses and dreamed of being a cowboy and riding the rodeo circuit one day, not imagining that instead he would be riding with Karen and David O’Connor, looking to tackle some of the top events in the country.  Will’s dad, Geoff, took English riding lessons when he was young and told young Will that if he tried English for a year, he could switch back to his rodeo dream.  After a few years at the local English riding school, Will learned about eventing and completely forgot about the rodeo.
