What is your best memory with horses?

Jumping with my team at my first Nations Cup in Aachen is, by far, my best memory. It is something I will never forget.

What drives your passion in the equine industry?

As a rider, I love competition, but I also like the everyday riding where you’re improving a horse with a set goal. Some people just like to compete, but not the training end of it. I also like the training end of it.

Do you have any words of wisdom for younger riders?

Find someone you look up to who can be a good mentor and immerse yourself in studying their system. Be open minded and willing to learn from them. It’s important to find somebody you look up to who suits your style of riding.

What is your favorite part of balancing life with a family and being a professional in the industry?

Well I’m fortunate that I have two girls who actually like riding so that makes it easier to do what I like to do and spend times with my kids. They’re both really passionate about it. I am on the road a lot, but over the summer they come to shows as well as being down here for WEF. I enjoy teaching them as well as having them around and being a part of the business.
