I have spent the last four years actively trying to learn as much as possible when it comes to horses. After not knowing anything for the first part of my career, my knowledge has increased tenfold in the last four years. I have worked in three different barns and trained with several different trainers.
I work on 3 different teams- first is the switchboard team in which I transfer phone calls to the appropriate department within the company. The other two teams are customer support for new products launched by the Wall Street Journal.
I have been riding horses for fourteen years, with the last four years spent seriously pursuing my riding goals and continuing my education at a very successful show barn in Pennsylvania. Under the tutelage of the trainer there I have flourished from a scared rider to a confident rider on the flat. I have worked in three different barns and have a plethora of experience in taking care of horses on a daily basis and in acting as a show groom.

I started out riding basic English doing walk, trot, canter and eventually small cross rails. In the last four years I have mainly ridden with a Hunter/Equitation trainer and briefly with a dressage trainer. I have worked with a showjumper in the past so I am familiar with the discipline. Most of my riding consists of flatwork with some small jumps mixed in.
I showed on my college's equestrian team for two years but that style of competition just did not suit me, so I left the team in favor of focusing on my riding at home so that I could horse show locally. At the first show I attended I received Grand Champion in Adult Hunters on the flat. I have attended many horse shows both rated and local including Devon, Duncraven, Monmouth Horse Show, Monmouth at the Team, the Gladstone Horse Show, Sussex County Benefit Horse Show, and many more.
