Korin began riding in 1994 at age five and with the support of her grandmother, competing over fences two years later.  In 2000 Korin discovered dressage when her family moved from Florida to Indiana. In 2003 Korin met Jennifer Kaiser and began lessons at Forrest Hill. From the Kaisers she gained experience starting young horses, riding stallions, teaching, training and competing client's horses. By 2005 Korin was certain of her passion and equestrian career choice.

The Kaisers offered Korin the 10 yr. old grey percheron/thoroughbred gelding, Forest, to train and show. He was talented but could be difficult. A strong bond formed between these two equally determined and talented personalities. In 2006 the pair competed for the first time at Third level and never looked back. Korin, with Jennifer's coaching and assistance, competed both Forest and the breeding stallion, Portmanteau at International level dressage competitions. In 2008, Korin was regional champion in the Young Rider Team test and reserve champion in Intermediare I class.

In 2012 Korin joined KYB Dressage to broaden her experience and education. Working for Kim and Yvonne Barteau, she trained and competed horses for KYB and clients.  One of Korin's main competition horses was Jackie Pisani’s, Tristan. Together they showed Second through Fourth levels, qualified for regionals at Open Second level, Second level freestyle and Third level Open placing third at Third level in a very competitive field and fourth in second level freestyle championship. The pair qualified at Third level Open for the first ever USDF National Dressage Finals, Lexington, KY. 

Famos, owned by Dr. Andrea De Leo, was Korin's other main competition horse.  She competed Famos at the Region 2 Championships in the Third and Fourth level open championships and the Fourth level musical Freestyle championship, placing 3rd. Ending the season nationally ranking 6th at 4th level musical freestyle and 25th, 4th level. 

Korin returned to Forrest Hill Farm in January 2014 as an assistant trainer. She now trains and competes under the tutelage of the Kaisers. In 2014 Korin qualified several mounts for the Region 2 Championships and competed successfully at the prestigious Dressage At Devon.
