Riding since I was 21, showed Hunter for several years, now do some Limited Distance Endurance, though not always looking to do a conditioning ride.

Purchased Mustang Oreo as a 9-year-old green-broke scared of arena work. Have put most of the training and experience on him myself. We like to trot-out on the trails; Oreo can trot up to 15 MPH. I have Thurs-Fri-Sat off so usually on the trails those days; ride arena one or two other days a week. Summertime we try to go out on trails after work too!

I work at Western Farm Center, feed store, and volunteer for state and regional parks as Mounted Assistance Unit volunteer. Also help in planning and development of open spaces and regional parks as volunteer representative of Sonoma County Trails Council and Sonoma County Horse Council.

Love to horse-camp with special friends. My horse is with me for life; he is my partner, my friend, my son. Have dogs and husband, too. We like to hike, vacation in Tahoe where we can take the dogs on trail. Husband is ultra-marathon athlete, so we sometimes go out on trail with him running and us trotting and galloping behind.
