A glamorous equestrian known for her involvement in a failed multimillion-dollar San Diego horse show has admitted placing a $2 million hit on her husband, getting sentenced to less than four years behind bars.
Tatyana Remley, 43, pleaded guilty in Vista Superior Court on Thursday to solicitation to commit murder in connection with her attempt to hire a mutual friend to kill her husband, Mark Remley, NBC San Diego reported.
She also pleaded guilty to possession of a loaded, concealed firearm that was not registered to her. A second gun-related charge was dismissed as part of a plea deal.
Tatyana Remley was sentenced to three years and eight months behind bars.
She was arrested in a sting operation at a Solana Beach Starbucks in August – about a month after her husband discovered she’d offered a mutual friend $2 million to kill him.
Mark went to authorities after he learned of the plot from the same friend his estranged wife had bribed. He told investigators she also burned down his house days before trying to arrange the hit.
The incident came after the couple’s tumultuous 12-year marriage, during which they organized a multimillion-dollar, 45-show equestrian acrobatics show at the Del Mar Fairgrounds in San Diego called Valitar.
But after just a few shows, the horse extravaganza was canceled, leaving its performers and crew members empty-handed.
The couple went on to file for divorce amid accusations of committing violence against each other, but rekindled their rocky marriage several times over the years.
In May, Tatyana Remley accused her husband of putting a gun to her head in one incident, chasing her around with a knife in another, and firing a gun in their home during an argument in a third.
She also alleged she was sexually assaulted at gunpoint by a friend while Mark was present.
The high-flying couple owned numerous homes, sports cars, boats and exotic pets, according to one divorce filing.
However, a petition seeking spousal support claimed that the “wife is experiencing extreme financial strain.
“She is unable to maintain her realistic monthly expenses of just $12,000, much less [than] what she was accustomed to at $50,000,” the petition said.
According to a bombshell admission by her own mother, Remley suffered a terrible upbringing amid sexual abuse by a family member.
Remley’s first husband, Ken Woolcott — a former part-owner of the NBA team Seattle SuperSonics — blamed that upbringing on his ex’s ongoing troubles.
“Essentially, Tatyana was captive for about 10 years (9 – 20 years old) with little, if any, contact with the outside world, education, social interaction or structure,” he told The Post.
