2.) Who has been your biggest influence in the Arabian breed in getting you to where you are today?
My biggest influence in the Arabian breed is my parents and grandparents. I had the privilege of growing up in the industry and having amazing opportunities to ride some amazing horses; without them, none of what I have accomplished today would have been possible.
3.) If someone were to describe you, what would they say about you?
I would hope they would say that I am extremely hard working, but always trying to have fun doing it.
4.) Name one show ring quirk you have:
I have to keep my saddle just loose enough so I can move it around. I like to be able to get it just right in between maneuvers in the reining arena.
