You, your family and riding:

  

What made you start riding: My mom won riding lessons when I was 7 and I loved it so much and it just grew from there.

What was the name of your first horse/pony? Fancy

What horses/ponies are you currently riding/showing: Fancy that, Kinetic, Tea for Two 

Do you have friends at school that ride? If not, do they think it's cool that you ride horses or do they wonder why you don't do more mainstream sports? Nobody in my family rides but I have lots of friends that ride and my school has a equestrian team!

How do you juggle your time to include riding and other activities?  

Playing lacrosse and riding horses as well as taking advanced classes can be hard but I take a study hall which helps me get all my homework done before I go home!

Do you attend traditional school or online/home school? I currently attend traditional school and fly back from the horse shows every other week. 

What is your favorite piece of tack and why?

  I love my saddle!! I own a voltaire and it is so comfortable :) it also has pink on it!

Goals and accomplishments

What you would like to accomplish as a junior rider? 

One of my biggest goals is to go to high children jumper finals. Although I just started jumping 3’6 it is something I would like to do this year or next!!

What are you most proud of as a rider?

I am most proud of all the training I have put into my green pony to make her the pony she is today.

Do you see yourself riding after your junior years? (College, turn professional, other??)
