My mom has always loved horses and I don't remember a time in my life when we didn't own horses. I began taking riding lessons as a child, and helped my mom run our breeding farm in middle school. We left California in 2010 and brought our horses with us first to Pennsylvania, then Virginia. Now we board at a barn in Midlothian. I joined the team my freshman year looking to learn a new discipline and get back into riding. I study Special Education at Longwood and I'm looking to graduate in 2018 and also spend my graduate year at Longwood. I plan to teach, but not to give up riding and maybe doing some small shows after college. I know I'll definitely continue to care for our five horses and support our team at shows!
