Tanja Schnuderl’s extensive knowledge and experience in both the legal and equine professions created the perfect foundation for her career as an equine expert witness.
Tanja grew up riding and showing horses in Germany. She had her
first riding lesson at the age of seven. An Oldenburger gelding
named “Noblesse Oblige” became her four-legged partner for many
years and started her lifelong passion for horses. When she moved to
the US seven years ago, she brought her international equestrian
experience and continued to ride and show horses here in the US.
Soon after leasing a dressage horse at a private boarding facility outside of Washington DC, clients and boarders noticed Tanja’s expertise and began asking her advice for equine care questions. Soon they trusted her competence to handle, take care of and school their valuable horses. Tanja quickly took over different horse care responsibilities on a weekly basis. Her professional demeanor and extensive knowledge provided a career path to working with horses fulltime, and she accepted a position as Barn Manager of 30 horses.
Her professional demeaner, attention to detail, and expertise in equine management finds her now servicing top Sport Horses at the long established Loch Moy Farm, a modern 20-stall boutique barn, which is home to the Maryland Horse Trials. In addition, Tanja works at the exclusive 8 horse training facility of USDF Gold, Silver and Bronze medalist and FEI Dressage Rider Barbara Strawson in Montgomery County, Maryland.
Tanja is a certified appraiser with the American Society of Equine
Appraisers and has established her own equine appraisal business,
Sigma Equine, LLC.
Tanja is an active member of the United Stated Equestrian Federation (USEF), the United Stated Dressage Federation (USDF) and the Potomac Valley Dressage Association (PVDA) and competes at dressage shows on a regular basis.
With Tanja’s background as an international paralegal, growing up in the equine industry in Germany and her experience as an equine expert witness, she serves as The Director of International Services for The Equine Expert LLC with specialties in barn management, horse behavior and appraising.
