About The Rider


I have 23 years experience in the horse industry. I grew up riding show hunters, equitation, and some jumpers, ranging from local hunter circuits to USEF "AA" competitions. After college, I rode and trained professionally for three years in Middleburg, Virginia. During that time, I became a regular fox hunter with the Piedmont Fox Hounds and other area hunts, and competed in USEA recognized events as well. Many years later and now an amateur once more, I find myself more interested in having fun and crossing discipline lines to enjoy the best of what each has to offer.


I fell in love with Thoroughbreds back in 1997, when my parents purchased my first horse for me. My big grey mare, Triple, taught me that the heart of a Thoroughbred cannot be beaten. I owned her for 10 years, during which we won many state championships ranging from the Equitation divisions to the Junior Hunters.  I learned so much from her.  I had to put her down in 2007 due to colic, something she struggled with throughout her life.  She was truly a horse of a lifetime, one I am still thankful for today.  She was a friend, a teacher, a partner, and a competitor.
