How did you start riding?
My mom grew up riding, so I have grown up in a barn.

What is your favorite thing about riding/or your horse?
My favorite thing about Sporty is his personality! He is quirky and has taught me a lot.

What would you like to do when you are older?
I want to be a nurse.

Tell us your favorite quote and why:
“Sometimes the bravest thing you can do is to keep going when you really feel like giving up.” -unknown

This is my favorite quote because when things get hard it reminds me to be brave and to keep going. With a schedule this busy and having a competitive show schedule and keeping up with school, sometimes it seems easy to give up, but this quote really helps me remember that giving up isn’t the answer.

What do you think the most important aspects of horsemanship are?
It’s very difficult for me to pick out just one important aspect of horsemanship, but I would say taking care of your own horse and to build a bond with him/her.

More Fun Facts

  • How many pets do you have (and what kind)?
    Four dogs (three Rhodesian Ridgebacks and one Australian Shepherd), two horses (one OTTB and one Irish Sport Horse)
  • What is your favorite animal (apart from a horse)?
  • What is your favorite color?
  • What is your favorite food?
  • What is something unique about you?
    I am not afraid to voice my opinion.
  • What is one word that your friends would describe you as?
    My friends would say that I am reliable.

What is one thing you would like to tell people about Thoroughbreds or the Thoroughbred Incentive Program?
The Thoroughbred Incentive Program offers great awards and shows for you and your Thoroughbred.

What are your goals for your horse in 2019?
My goal for 2019 is to complete a novice horse trial. I would also like to compete at the 2019 T.I.P. Championships.

Go T.I.P. and go riding!
