USA's rising star Tanner Korotkin has joined Sweet Oak Farm, working under Shane Sweetnam. 

A highly decorated junior rider while riding for his family's Castlewood Farm, as well as Missy Clark and John Brennan's North Run operation, Korotkin earned the prestigious Junior Jumper Championship at the Devon Horse Show in 2019 and concluded his junior career with ribbons at the Platinum Performance/USEF Show Jumping Talent Search Finals — East, the Lindsay Maxwell Charitable Fund WIHS Equitation Final, and the ASPCA Maclay National Championship. Taking up professional status in December, he joins Sweet Oak Farm with his two international mounts, Country Boy and Deauville S.

"I’m beyond excited for this opportunity, to the point where it’s hard to explain," said Korotkin, 18. "I have my own big dreams, like most riders, and to have the opportunity to learn from Shane, one of the best riders on the Irish squad, is a huge opportunity that most don’t get. There are countless things that I know I’ll learn, both on and off of a horse, and I’m ready for every bit of it."

"Tanner has been with us two weeks now, and he fit right in straight away," said Sweetnam, a veteran of the 2018 World Equestrian Games and a member of the Irish squad that took top honors at the 2017 European Championships in Rotterdam, The Netherlands. "He's working very hard and has already put in some good rounds. He comes with a good education from his parents at Castlewood and also with Missy and John. I think it's going to be another step in the learning process for his career."

"He's a talented rider and can be a real plus to the team here at Sweet Oak Farm," he added.
