Spent a year after high school working as an assistant trainer at a small hunter/jumper facility in MN before heading to college. Graduated from Stephens College with a Bachelor of Science in Equestrian Studies. My time at Stephens was spent focusing on teaching and training. Our school focuses on training horses using classical dressage, through each level of the pyramid. I have ridden with a variety of riders including Olympic rider, Albert Voorn, Molly Hunt, and Christian and Mckrell Baier.

10 years riding experience, 7 years in Hunter/Jumpers. I have done a bit of driving, western pleasure, and saddle seat as well during my time at Stephens College. I started out learning the American Forward Riding System. However, at Stephens we are trained that classical dressage training is the foundation for proper jumping. We train our horses through the dressage pyramid, and spend a lot of time on our own dressage skills. I am at 2nd level in dressage. I prefer the Classical Riding System.
I have worked local shows, assisting the trainer, coaching kids in their classes, keeping everything organized and on time. I also have experience doing bookkeeping for local schooling shows. I have shown locally in both hunters and jumpers.
