I was started as a Hunter/Jumper Rider and rode and showed locally up to 2'3" for 6 years before switching to primarily Dressage, which I have been riding for four years with limited show experience. I have extensive Huntseat and Dressage experience as a show rider, but also have professional training in Western and Saddleseat. I have previously been employed as an all-around barn hand at a private facility in Indiana where I was responsible for cleaning and maintaining the facilities and 20+ horses, and gained experience with many breeds, but especially Icelandic Horses. During this time, I exercised and did training activities with many horses, and had the opportunity to ride in a professional clinic with Jaton Lord and Carolyn Hunt. I also gained experience with working cow horses, and have worked cattle. I have handled Studs without issue. I also have other work experience managing a facility and teaching students in many different settings.
