I am a native Arizonan, currently residing in the Valley of the Sun. I’ve had a lifelong passion for horses that started well before my first riding lessons at age seven, and has only intensified in the years since. My background is in all-around versatility performance in both Western and English disciplines from showing in the Pony of the Americas Club.
I’ve found my equestrian sport niche in long-distance endurance riding and competition, after starting competitive trail riding in 2001, and then endurance in 2005. To me, there’s nothing else out there quite like it. It offers flexibility and a wide range of attainable goals, the chance to see some incredible scenery, and I’ve found it to be an unparalleled experience in bonding with one’s horse.
I work for Lander Industries, makers of the Renegade® Hoof Boot line. I’m an aficionado of the barefoot hoof and performance hoof booting, and am constantly seeking education on all matters of equine performance and lifestyle.
I love hearing from readers, either via comments or email. I’ve made endurance friends all over the world that started with a simple email or Facebook message, so if you’re so inclined, I’m always happy to chat! There’s a contact form below, or you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
