THE

TEAM

KASEY PERRY-GLASS

Despite being a decorated international athlete and Olympian, Kasey’s greatest source of pride is providing her horses with the highest possible level of care. She is an advocate for fair training and treatment, and has made animal welfare the top priority for Team Believe.

 

Kasey started riding as a toddler. She joined her mom and sisters at the stable, and worked her way up from pony rides, to pony club, to eventing. In high school, she fell in love with dressage and committed herself to the sport. She earned numerous accolades while competing regionally in the pacific northwest, but earned national attention in 2013 while competing in small tour CDI’s with Goerklintgaard’s Dublet.

 

By 2015 the pair was competing in Europe for a spot on the Pan American team. They didn’t make the cut, but did well enough to earn attention from Debbie McDonald, who agreed to take them into full training.

One year later, in their first season at Grand Prix, Kasey and Dublet earned their spot on the Olympic team.

 

A dream come true, they were going to Rio.

 

Even after earning an Olympic bronze medal, the dream didn’t stop. Kasey and Dublet rank regularly in the top 5 internationally and have competed in numerous world cups, nations cups, and the world equestrian games.

 

Kasey marvels at Dublet’s propensity to get better with age, and is excited to put Team USA back on the podium in Tokyo 2021.

DANA GLASS

 

Be it training, shoeing, herding, or starting youngsters, Dana has an impressive track record and a reputation for being a true horsemen. He has “fixed” problem horses for numerous team riders, and is a master at de-escalating otherwise dangerous situations. When things feel complicated, Dana makes it simple. He has a calm energy, a keen eye, and is essential to Team Believe.

HOLLY GORMAN

 

Holly’s support is a pillar of this team. She is more than a groom. She is a sister, a best friend, a crazy co-pilot, and a shoulder to cry on. Holly puts her life on hold to join Kasey for everything from CDIs, WEG, Olympics, and beyond.

DIANE PERRY

 

Diane’s passion has been a driving force for Team Believe since the very beginning. Bringing Kasey to lessons as a kid, building a barn in their California backyard, and then expanding operations to Wellington, FL. Diane is the ultimate barn mom, boss lady, and not to mention an HGTV-worthy designer. Her attention to detail and dedication to dressage has made multiple dreams come true. Diane owns and sponsors a string of horses for Kasey, including Dublet.

BOB PERRY

 

Bob is the team’s voice of reason and bank of emotional support. His dad duties extend far beyond Kasey and her siblings, as he is known to “adopt” and help anyone he can. Bob is cheerleader in chief and team sommelier. He has made numerous cross-country drives, moving equipment from CA to FL, and back. His unconditional love and get-it-done mentality always seems to dissolve stress, and make for an energetic atmosphere.

MEGHAN LAFFIN

 

Meghan joined Team Believe in 2019 after riding and managing Iron Rock Dressage in Green Valley, CA. She is a former D1 volleyball player, network news journalist, and recently earned her Master’s in Business Administration from UC Davis. Meghan grooms, rides, and helps run the daily operations of Team Believe.

Family is everything. These pictures only show a small portion of those who have supported me. I can't express enough my gratitude and love for my friends and family who have supported me throughout this journey.
