What is your first memory of horses?

There are so many as I was lucky enough to have a barn in my backyard but one of the best was riding my pony, Pepper, to school.

When was the first time you got bucked off?

Probably as soon as I got on.  

If you weren’t an equestrian, what would you be?

When I was younger I would have said a gymnast but now I would say a prosthetic engineer.

What is a must have at horse shows?

My parents.

What do you love most about horses?

Their willingness to work with you and the constant surprises. They are always humbling.

What is your favorite movie?

Horse movie? Wild Hearts Can't Be Broken. But I am pretty partial to all comedies.

If your life were a song, what would it be?  

How about The Eagles, Life in the Fast Lane, because my dad and I used to listen to that all the time! Now he likes me to listen to Ride Like the Wind by Christopher Cross.

What is your go-to meal at horse shows?

Honestly, not much!

Where would you go on your dream vacation?

I love traveling and I loved living in Germany but I guess the Grand Canyon is at the top of my list at the moment.

What are your favorite Noble Outfitters products?

Generally, the quality is unbelievable; especially with how hard I am on my clothes! I am also a triathlete and runner and love their clothes to work out in!

  • Girl Tough Canvas Jacket - I love the canvas!
  • Madison Show Shirt - It’s great to show in!
  • Horseplay Backpack - It’s the best to use when I’m at shows to carry all my gear!
