Hello everyone!

Ever since I  saw my first dressage horse passaging at a show in Costa Mesa California, I was hooked. I remember telling my mom as we drove by that I would learn how to ride like that. This has been over 21 years ago, I will never forget seeing all those dressage riders and how it made me feel inside.

I have been very blessed in my life with great horses who were so generous and always came out of their stalls ready to go.  I was careful to warm them up properly and follow the pyramid of training.  I really believe the reason they are in their mid twenties and higher, that it was because of proper training and lots of love.

I also believe that when you have outgrown your horse and you need to go on to a different mount, that to share a well schooled horse will make someone else’s dream come true.  I have always shared my horses with my friends, and the joyous look on their faces when they were riding was all I had to see.

I have given two of my horses away that went on and took junior riders to win at dressage shows and to qualify at a State Championship.

My current horse is a Westphalian gelding Challis, he is 24 years old and I have him semi-retired at a great facility called Rebel D Ranch in Ramona, Ca.  I go out and ride him once a week when time permits, he has lots of room to roam and loves his girlfriend!

I have competed to Intermediare I and I have taught beginning dressage to adults and juniors for the last 11 years. This has and was a dream of mine since I was a kid.

Being a part of the year end championships at  chapter shows, at the Interscholastic Equestrian League shows and winning at the state championships in some of the classes, is more than I could ask for. I have been truly blessed with great students and horses that will always be a part of my life.

I look forward to the success of my website for the juniors, this will give them a place to go anytime they need a little help.

Below is a picture of Challis and I after we performed a musical freestyle to Jingle Bell Rock, a benefit at the Huntington Beach Equestrian Center. He was wonderful and he loved the crowd. Look at his tail how soft and thick it is,  nicer than my hair!
