I have been on a horse since before I could walk. I grew up in an equestrian family with my mom being a speed demon running barrels, arena races and so much more, while my aunt was the hunter/jumper. You could say this sport is in my blood; however I did not discover eventing until few years ago. Most of my life I competed in hunter/jumpers up and down the East coast from local to AA rated shows and dabbled in almost every discipline out there. Not finding one I really loved (well I still do love hunter/jumpers) until 2010 when I went to the World Equestrian Games and watched for the first time ever the Cross Country portion of this thing called 3 Day eventing. I looked at my mom and said this is what I wanted to do.

It’s been a long road to get to this point but I am finally here and hopefully for the future in Eventing. I began the 2015 season on a young green Welsh Cob mare, but the opportunity arose to lease Cynthia’s upper level horse, Hampton, mid-season.

Hampton and I completed our first USEA Recognized Horse Trial with a 3rd place finish at Novice at Heritage Park in the fall of 2015.  They completed their first USEA Recognized Training Level event at Mill Creek Pony Club Horse Trial in May 2016.
