Share a little about yourself.

I am from West Virginia but have lived in Lexington since 2016. I graduated from University of Kentucky in 2020 with an Equine Science and Management degree. While at school, I discovered the world of dressage through UK’s Intercollegiate Dressage Association (IDA) team. Currently, I am an adult amateur rider and own two horses. I ride several others and do lower-level dressage. In 2022, I hope to compete at my first recognized dressage show.
