About me

I have been riding for roughly 20 years. I have training in hunter/jumper, dressage, and western disciplines. I graduated William Woods University in 2014 with a bachelor's degree in equestrian science with an emphasis on teaching hunter/jumper riding. I believe to be a good horseman you must incorporate elements of dressage flat work and a good basis of groundwork to develop the flexibility and athleticism a horse needs to reach their full potential as an athlete.

Achievements as rider

I have been riding horses of all disciplines for 20 years. I grew up riding dressage, competing in local and rated shows in Kentucky. In 2010 i began my journey to get my Bachelor's degree in Equestrian Science with an emphasis on teaching and training, i graduated the program in 2014. During my time at William Woods University, I fell in love with the sport of show jumping. I had a wonderful opportunity thereto learn from wonderful trainers and clinicians through participation and auditing including Matt Holburg, Linda Allen, and Gail Lampe. I have worked for many years to ensure I am a well rounded horsewoman who not only knows how to handle a horse in the arena, but is proficient in groundwork and all elements of horse care.

Achievements as trainer

I began teaching and training during college during breaks and on weekends. Since then I have worked with several local show barns in the area and independently. Teaching is a passion of mine and always has been something that brings me much joy.
