I started riding and taking lessons at age 6. By the time I was 13 my parents agreed that I could have my first pony. Throughout my teenage years, my riding became quite serious. I outgrew my pony and soon found my Thoroughbred mare. She and I progressed together and found ourselves developing a passion for Combined Training. At the age of 16, I was successfully competing at Preliminary level under the guidance of my riding instructor Hank Hutson. At the present time I ride and practice dressage on my own small farm with my goofy gray Thoroughbred gelding that I adopted in 2011!
