What is your horses’ name?
Kiss By Design

Why do you love your horse?
Because she’s quiet and easy to ride. Thinks she like me more than her owner…probably because I give her treats!

How long have you been involved in Quarter Horses?
Since I was three

Who is your coach?
My mom, Shari Irwin

What is your favourite class?
Trail

What other class(es) are you showing in?
Showmanship and all the walk-jog small-fry events.

Why do you like to show?
I’ve met some cool friends and won some pretty neat prizes. It’s been a lot of fun!

What is your biggest achievement?
I won Hi-Pt Lead Line with Kiss in 2010. In 2011, my mom leased a paint horse for me and I showed in all the 11 & under events. This was the first time I showed all by myself. Scary and fun at the same time!

What activities are you involved with outside of horses?
I play a lot of hockey and power skating. When regular season is over, I like to play road hockey games with my mom, Brent and my two older brothers. I also play lacrosse.

What do you aspire to be?
I want to be the next Sidney Crosby. Brent is going to be my agent.

What are your favourite movies?
All the Harry Potter movies.

What are your favourite songs?
Scream and Shout by Wil.I.AM and Sexy and I know it by LMFAO
