I began riding at a welsh breeding farm at the age of 8. During high school, I spent every afternoon there and was allowed to ride many of the young/green ponies, as well as some client horses. I travelled to horse shows as a groom and catch rider. I also assisted as a counseler/trainer for the summer pony camps, and was responsible for coaching the younger riders at horse shows.
In the last two years, I have gained experience in dressage, jumpers, eventing, and the AO hunters. Currently, I train with my mother, who competed at the national level in Germany in dressage and eventing.
I have ridden and worked at two different facilites. The first was smaller and focused primarily on lessons and training. The second is university-owned, and is home to over 60 horses during the school year. At both barns, I helped with daily barn chores and horse care including stall cleaning, feeding, maintenance, etc.
