I am a competitive youth rider on the AQHA circuit. I currently show an AQHA gelding, Forgetur Coatsntails, or Jack. At the regional AQHA show in 2018, I was Regional Champion in Showmanship, Reserve Regional Champion in Equitation, Top Ten in Horsemanship and Hunter Under Saddle, and Reserve High Point with Jack.
I am a rising freshman and will be competing on Berry College’s multiple national champion western IHSA team.
During my high school career, I rode for Cedar Ridge Equestrians, based in Barre, VT. Our team has competed in the Interscholastic Equestrian Association (IEA) and the Youth Equestrian Development Association (YEDA).
2019 marked a significant change for my high school equestrian team, and Cedar Ridge Equestrians had an extremely successful first season competing in the Youth Equestrian Development Association (YEDA). At the YEDA Invitational in April, I was named the Invitational Champion in Diamond Horsemanship. I then went on to place 7th at YEDA Nationals in the same event.
In 2016, my equestrian team joined the IEA. In the 2016-17 season I qualified in JV Novice Horsemanship for IEA Zone 1 Finals in three meets. In May of 2017, I was happy to achieve IEA Zone 1 Championship and represented New England in the National Finals in Oklahoma, July 2017.
At IEA National Finals, I was named National Champion in the JV Novice Horsemanship Division. I was one of two qualifiers from Zone 1 and the only National Champion this year from New England.
