I started out riding Western when I was around 11 - 12, I Barrel Raced competed in Western Pleasure, rode in local Gymkanas. When I was 15 I started to also ride english, I was a Pony Clubber, I taught summer camps and Pony Club to the young kids, and I competed in Hunters and Equitation. I can still remember going over my first jump on a horse. And that was that. If there are significant times in your life that shape who you are today, this would be one of the biggest. Somedays it seems like yesterday that I was in the saddle, the memories are so vivid.
