Riding, school and managing your time

  • Do you have friends at school that ride? Not really. They might take lessons but I'm a riding machine.  
  •  I'm always missing school on Fridays for shows and they think that's cool. 
  • How do you juggle your time to include riding and other activities?  Luckily I ride hunter and jumper and for other activities I ride endurance, lol. 
  • I attend traditional school.  

Favorite piece of tack and why?

 No fav tack but gloves, I have fav gloves and riding pants too.


More about you...

  • Is there a horse sport that you would like to try that is different than the style you ride?  I do want to try eventing and every year we, my grandma and I, say we're going to but we don't seem to fit it in. 
  • Do you board or keep your ponies at home? I keep my hunter Talisker Storm at show barn EVF. I take my jumper in and out and keep my endurance horse at home, well at my grandmas. 
  • Do you know how to braid? I can braid my hair but not my pony's.
  • What you would like to accomplish as a junior rider? I wanted to qualify for Pony Finals 2017 and I have. 
  • What are you most proud of as a rider? I'm so proud of my new jumper pony and our first show, my hunter and qualifying for Pony Finals and my first 55 mile endurance ride this year. 
  • Do you see yourself riding after your junior years?  I hope I can always ride and show. 
  • I love the hotels and pools of showing but I also love the camping for endurance.
