I learned what I know by doing. I grew up in Pony Club and experienced everything from polo to vaulting, fox hunting, mounted games, 3-Day Eventing, and (my personal favorite) show jumping.
In high school, I experienced saddleseat, reining, and began working with one of the top Standardbred trainers in the World. I have experienced many disciplines and worked with some amazing equine athletes. My experience is extensive, but you don't have to take my word for it 😉
