My days are long, and in climates that run to the extremes, with my winters in Wellington and my summers in northern Virginia. Heat and humidity are a constant, and I accumulate a lot of saddle time. I’m also a professional rider and trainer, so looking good in spite of it all is important - I want to look polished and presentable to my customers, even when it’s 104* with 100% humidity and theirs is the sixth horse of my morning.
Eli and I have been partners for about five years now, and we are venturing into the hunter ring, which is new for me but he seems to love it. I have been obsessed with horses for as long as I can remember and have been riding since I was 9.
I am 33 and rode extensively as a junior and then took a break from horse showing. This past week got a new horse, Louis, who is a lease. I live to ride, so my work has naturally evolved around that!
