Showing horses is my passion.  As a youth I went to about one show a month, these shows included 4-H, Open Shows, OHSET and the Morgan Circuit.  As an adult I am still active in Open, Dressage and Morgan Shows, plus I coach at 4-H and OHSET.


 I also very firmly believe in the continuing education of all equine professionals- reguardless of level of expertise, which is why, for myself, I take lessons with FEI instructors whenever possible.  


Some accomplishments of mine include:
