Equestrian Life

It's said that, in life, it's important to have your "why." Why are you doing what you do? Why are you motivated to hustle and work hard? For me, horses are that why. I started riding when I was 9 years old and have been in love with these beautiful, giving, and magnificent animals ever since. Today I compete in both the amateur-owner hunter and adult jumper divisions with my horses Cassius, Lucca, and Serafina. While juggling work and riding can often be a challenge that requires great patience, planning, and dedication, there's nothing that I wouldn't do to continue the privilege of pursuing my passion. You see, my horses are not only my why, they are also my "how." They're the ones that provide me with a place of quiet, unconditional love and that fuel and drive me to set big goals and accomplish all that I set out to do.
