Share a little about yourself.  

I am originally from just outside of Lexington, Kentucky and began riding horses when I was 5 years old. In 2015, I graduated from Morehead State University with a Bachelor of Science in Equine Science. I am recently married, have five horses, and an Australian Shepherd puppy. My horses and I enjoy trail riding, trail obstacle competitions, and competing with an equestrian drill team.
