I do all general care of the 7 horses at my barn. I do morning chores, create feed charts, create chore schedule, ride and train horses, give lessons, place orders, groom, show, and am responsible for the up keep of the facility
I worked as an intern at a therapuetic and training barn for 3 years. I then went on to get my A.S.S Equine Studies from Vermont Technical College. Since then I started my own boarding and training barn where I currently care for 7 horses that are in for training or rehabilitation. I have worked at several different barns as stable hands where I was responsible for the general care of the horses as well as barn maintenance.
At school, I primarily focused on Dressage and Western Pleasure. I have 3 horses that all compete in different disciplines. With my AQHA gelding I show hunter jumper. I have an AQHA mare that is trained through second level dressage as well as to drive. I also compete with her in gymkhanas. My draft cross mare is my project horse who is currently working towards our first limited distance endurance ride.
I have shown in gymkhana series in Vermont as well as the Vermont Horse Show Association. My mare and I are also members of the American Endurance Ride Conference where we will be competing at GMHA this summer in Vermont
