Nick Cwicke joins Next Level Eventing

After 10 years in Alabama, Arizona native Nick Cwicke has made the 2,000-mile move to join Tamra Smith at Next Level Eventing in Temecula. After so many years on the East Coast, the decision to head back wasn’t easy, but Nick says it was the right move at the right time.

Nick knew that getting to the highest level of the sport would mean surrounding himself with others who had similar goals. “Around Thanksgiving I was back in Scottsdale taking some time to decide my next move, and I taught a clinic at Tamie’s,” he explains. “While I was there she approached me about potentially moving into her program. Tamie is someone I’ve always admired, and she’s absolutely at the top of her game right now, so my interest was definitely piqued.”

Nick’s arrival gives Next Level Eventing another top rider to add to their impressive team roster. “It’s exciting to be able to work with these top riders and horses, and I’m thrilled to be an addition that can help Tamie when she’s on the road with teaching and riding. It’s a wonderful opportunity and I really look forward to working with Next Level Eventing,” Nick said.
