I have been involved in the Equine Industry for the past 30 years. I started riding when I was 6 years old and started showing Quarter Horses at the local horse club shows when I was 17. My Love for horses has only grown since then and it has lead me to become involved in many aspects of the industry Including:
Riding and giving riding lessons in Western and Western Pleasure. Working and riding in the English discipline. Saddlebreds, Tenn. Walkers, Arabians, Hanoverians.
In my training of horses I have also done the front end training on cow horses. The introduction to cattle, sorting, roping, gathering, penning etc.
In 1994 I started working with Standardbred Race Horses as a groom to go on and become a trainer. So I have worked with numerous breeds in various riding styles.
I have worked extensively and assisted veterinarians not only in the treatment but the diagnosing of health problems. I have also been involved in Artificial Insemination from Stallion handling not only in live cover but in the collection as well. Mare prep, to Ultra sounding, Birthing, Imprinting of foals etc.
I also rode Bulls in the International Pro Rodeo Association for 9 years.
