I own 5 horses and 1 donkey, and have rescued and trained all my horses. My three competition horses/ponies are Soccertess, Blue, and Buster. I compete in Hunters with them. Blue was my first pony, when I rescued him he was over 200 pounds underweight and was cut all over from spur and whip abuse. I’ve spent the last 3 years training and rehabilitating him. He will be competing for the first time in January 2017.
Buster was my second horse, he is a blood bay whose breed is unknown. When he was a colt he was in a trailer accident which crushed his hock. I’ve spent the past 2 years rehabilitating him and saddle breaking him he competed for the first time this past summer, and was Amazing. We do walk trot canter on the flat together.
Soccertess is one of my newest horses he was a victim of owner neglect I’ve been competing with him all of 2016 in 2″6 W/T/C with him.
I love horses with all my heart and training them have brought me closer in my relationship with Christ and have taught me self confidence. My goal is to go to US pony Finals with Blue in a couple of years, I also have always wanted to take part of the Mustang Makeover. My role model is Cammie Fielding, she is the nicest kindest person you will ever meet. She is so willing to help and if it wasn’t for her I wouldn’t be the rider I am today.
I have won Grand Champion in a schooling show twice but have always placed whereever I show. 3 funfacts about me:

  1. I have had 2 surgery’s this past year of 2016 (which meant I was out of riding for a total of 6 months)
  2. I run a certified 501c3 called Help Keep Hope
  3. I have been riding pretty much my whole life
