I competed for the US at the 2007 Pan American Games in Rio aboard Sagacious HF . As a team we received Gold and individually I received a Silver Medal. In 2008 I welcomed the birth of my twin son and daughter. I was back competing in 2009 at the Grnd Prix level with Sagacious where we again at the top of the rankings. I continues to compete Sagacious until 2012. During those years together we competed at the FESTIVAL OF CHAMPIONS for Olyimpic and WEG selection trials. In 2013 I began training and competing Lombard V. I brought him to the level of Intermidiare B with scores up to 75%. This horse was sold to a top rider in Sweden as an Olympic hopeful to allow the owner to pursue her own personal goals in riding. In 2014 another relationship was cultivated with a 11 year old KWPN Whitman. I went to train with Kyra Kyrklund in July and August of 2014. 2015 began our Grand Prix career with a median score of 68% in the Grand Prix and 70% in the GP Freestyle.


My goal is to continue my relationship with Whitman to be a consistent asset to the US Team as a World Cup, WEG, Nation Cup and potentially Olympic representative. I also would like to be starting with a younger horse now to be of value to the US Team in the future.
