What makes your horses special?: All of these horses are extremely athletic, smart, and try their best every time they are asked.

What is the most rewarding thing about having horses?: From horses, I have learned that the amount of effort you put in to something will directly correlate with what you can get out of it. I have had a very successful young rider career—winning a World Cup qualifier when I was 24 years old. I felt this reflected all of the hard work, dedication, and my important relationship with each horse that I have put towards the sport. The horses have taught me how to treat others, how to be responsible, and how to balance everything in my life. I wouldn’t be the person I am today without these wonderful animals.
