About Big Idea Eventing

Big Idea Eventing caters to all levels of riders and horses in all disciplines. Trainer Lauren Romanelli works out of two of Middle Tennessee's premier eventing facilities, primarily based at Southern Promise Farm in College Grove, she also travels to the Gallatin area to teach weekly. 

A successful three-day event, dressage, and jumper rider, Lauren is a 2006 graduate of Murray State University with a degree in Animal/Equine Science, and earned her teaching certificate in Ag Education from MTSU. She actively competes at United States Eventing Association recognized events and has developed several young horses through the levels, and she continues her own education with regular instruction from upper level eventers and dressage riders.

Lauren has ribboned at multiple southeastern eventing venues including the Kentucky Horse Park, Chattahoochee Hills and Poplar Place Farm. In 2011 she completed the Hagyard Midsouth Training Three Day Event. 

Lauren is proudly sponsored by Kate Wooten of English Saddle Fit in TN, who carefully picks and fit each of her saddles to her competition and training horses.                                                                                        Also sponsored by Custom Saddlery and Amanda Starr Bodyworks, Lauren and her                                 horses have never been more happy and comfortable.  

Lauren’s positive teaching style varies to meet each student’s needs. All of her students learn and grow at their own rate and gain confidence while achieving their riding goals and having fun. Those whose goals include competition are successfully eventing at the amoeba through novice levels.

She starts and trains green horses, helps students keep their horses tuned up, and excels at finding appropriate mounts for students and non-students to purchase or lease. Lauren also organizes clinics from time to time with Amy Wise, Kyle Carter, Heather Gillette and others. All students have access to these, as well as schoolings and show opportunities (both schooling and recognized). 

Her goal is helping riders and horses form the best partnership possible.
