About Meika,

Meika has been involved with horses for the majority of her life. She inherited the love of horses from her mother, Mary Decher, who also rode from a very young age.

Ponies and 4-H programs taught Meika the basics of horsemanship and it wasn’t until the Decher family moved to Germany, that she was introduced to dressage and eventually, eventing.

She has ridden at the Advanced level since 1999 and has had several fantastic horses, such as Blueprint, Goldfinch, and Good Deal Lucille. She was selected to ride with the USET’s Developing Rider Team for 2 years with Blueprint.

Having completed in her career, to date, 6 CCI***, and 4 CCI****, all long format. She is still aiming high with her current horses, Archie McPhee, Verily, and Oiselle NW. Her dressage training has been influenced by Linda Zang (MD) and Jen Verharen (WA). Her jump training has been shaped by Amy Tryon, Bobby Costello (NC), Scott Keach (FL), and Dom Schramm (PA).

Meika has given back to PNW Eventing in the form of being a USEA event organizer since 2014. She oversees a group of people who all help put on a beginner novice through intermediate level event, twice per year. She is also active in the USEA Area VII Council.
