Why do you love your horse?
I love my horse because she always tries her hardest to impress me and anyone we’re working with. I love her because she is a giant goof ball all the time and she makes me laugh.

Why do you like to show?
I enjoy showing because every time we enter the show pen a challenge arises, something new is learned and there is something to improve on. Showing allows me to be surrounded with all the people who love this sport as much as I do.
