Share a little about yourself. 

I was born and raised in Lexington, KY.  I showed reining horses for years, but put competition on hold when I got married.  My husband is also passionate about horses, having competed in eventing in Germany before moving to the US.  Although we both still enjoy riding in our free time, our focus these days is on our five-year- old daughter, who has been vaulting for a little over a year.
