I can remember being absolutely bonkers about horses since I was learning to walk and talk, but I began riding at the age of six. My riding career began at a Military Riding School in Caracas, Venezuela in show jumping. For me being around these amazing animals in a major metropolitan city was a dream come true, and I cherished every second of it, trying any discipline that was offered. Growing up as a military kid, we bounced from place to place through my childhood until I was grown. Horses were an expensive luxury, so I eagerly looked forward to irregular lessons whenever I could, relying on my very patient and supportive parents to drive me miles and miles out of the city to the nearest barn.
I currently live in North Carolina, and have 4 horses.
I am an avid student of the horse and have spent my whole life looking for and developing quality horsemanship. I have ridden with many incredible horsemen and women, hoping for a little bit of their knowledge and feel to rub off on me!
