About Mary Bess Davis


Mary Bess Davis (nee Sigman) was literally “born to ride”. Mary Bess comes from an equestrian family who placed her in the saddle as a toddler and who had her competing and foxhunting as a small child. Her father is Dr. Michael Sigman—who was an FEI veterinarian—who has been a vital asset to Mary Bess’ decisions and the care of her horses. Her mother and also upper level eventing horse owner, Catharine Sigman, can often be found at the shows supporting Mary Bess and all her students. While Mary Bess’ true passion is Three Day Eventing, she is a true “horsewoman”, she has participated in a multitude of disciplines including Pony Club, Hunters, and Vaulting. She successfully managed horse farms while receiving a college degree in Biology from the University of Georgia, all the while building her Triple Creek Eventing business training, selling horses and coaching students. Mary Bess has brought a handful of horses up through the Advanced/CCI**** level and has many accomplished students that have ranked in the top of the country at their level. She has had young riders' compete at NAYRC winning silver and bronze team and individual medals for the CCI** and CCI*** levels.  Mary Bess prides herself on working with a variety of horses and students and loves “bringing horses and students up the levels”.
