How you got started in your event: I went to work for some people in Germany and they trained Reining and cutting horses. I fell in love with reining! Sliding stops were intoxicating!

Proudest career moment: NRHA Futurity Reserve Champion

Tell us about your first Reining Performance: Tell us about your first Reining Performance: Very first performance was at Laramie County Community college in Cheyenne Wy. Our test at the end of the year had a show included and we had to do a reining pattern. I was so nervous I couldn’t remember my pattern!

You ride because: I love horses. I love teaching them things in a manner in which they understand and gain confidence and end up liking what they do!

If you weren’t a professional Reiner, you would be a: I have no idea!! I have often wondered that myself!

Favorite mentor or idol growing up: Didn’t know what reining was growing up. First clinic I ever saw was Ray Hunt, thought he was amazing!

Favorite place to travel on tour: My favorite show is the NRBC

Name one fun fact that people don’t know about you: I’m not very fun :-( No funny quirks or anything. The only thing I can think of is that my favorite sentence when I was a kid was “I can do it myself!!” Most of the pictures of me on a horse are bareback for that reason. I was too small to get the saddle on so I would just lead my horse up to our well pump and stand on that so I was taller and jump on bareback so I didn’t have to have anyone help me

Favorite way to unwind outside the reining: Watch a good movie or “Castle”

Good luck charm: I don’t have one.
