My favorite horse show memory is a toss-up between the two WHOA International Grand Championships I have won with my mare, Pistol Packin’ Annie and my Overall High Point at the 2015 TWHBEA World Versatility Show with my mare, Count On Spirit O’Three who had to be retired shortly after that show.

Horses have taught me how to be humble as well as how to be responsible.
