The Double E Start
I was born and raised around horses
I was born and raised around horses. I was fortunate enough to have a supportive family that wanted me to learn as much as possible. I have worked with many top trainers in both English and Western disciplines. I believe that there is always more that you can learn, and you can always make yourself better!
I was on a horse with my mother as soon as I could hold my head up. At the age of 3 I got my first pony. When I turned 6 I started to ride and show in the English discipline. I was an active member of Pony Club. I also competed mostly in 3 day eventing.
At the age of 16, I went to help some friends move cattle from their winter pasture to their summer pasture. That is when I decided I wanted to expand my knowledge and start to ride and train in the Western discipline. While on that ranch, I bought a 3 year old un-started mare. I named her "Blondie". I decided to compete in barrel racing and pole bending in High School rodeo.
After competing in High School Rodeo for a year I decided to expand my knowledge. I started to participate in team penning, sorting and also started to learn how to rope. I had the opportunity to work with different reining and cow horse trainers. In 2008 I was introduced to the fabulous world of Cowboy Mounted Shooting.
