Started riding at age 4, grew up on a racehorse property so have always loved horses. my first pony was a 12hh shetland named Freckles. My next pony after that was SM Molly, a little welsh who sparked my love for competition. Since then I have had many different show horses, my favourite being my bay hack I just sold Positive Outlook who took me to many champions and rider championships and my current newbie Unique.
Look forward to having Equus as a sponsor to help me achieve my goals!
