Hometown: Kennett Square, PA, USA

Number of years riding: I have ridden as long as I can remember. I grew up on a farm and we rode all the time. I would not canter until I was I was at least six years old. It took my older sister threatening me never to play with me again to get to me to canter.

Career accomplishments to date: 

  • • Long and successful career that includes winning at all the major shows
  • • Two-time World Championship Hunter.

How you got started in your event: I started riding because my mother was a riding instructor. She had a string of school horses and she taught riding five days a week, and then took all the boarders to shows on the weekend.

Favorite Ariat product (by name): Ranchero, Latigo Caiman Belly, Charger. M4 Low-Rise Tabac

Proudest career moment: I am very proud of my entire career. Taking a horse from a green youngster to a consistent champion at all the major shows always feels good. Most recently I won the $50,000 USHJA International Hunter Derby in Wellington Florida. That was a real thrill.
