Horse(s): Prima Donna

Discipline: Dressage

Years riding: Since I was 5 years old. I took my very first lesson way back in the day in 1987 at what is now MJM.

Favorite thing about riding: Well, I have made so many lifelong friendships because of riding and had the opportunity to show in Canada, the USA and England. I was also very fortunate to be able to teach lessons for several years. Watching my students laugh, smile, and sometimes even shed a tear put a smile on my face beyond words. I have just returned to basic dressage training after a long break due to injury. I cannot wait to see what the future holds for myself and Pixie, and I love watching this mare learn just as much as I am. And above all, my most favorite thing about riding beside the freedom, joy and happiness it brings to everyone is the ability to be trained by one of the best coaches I have ever had in my life, and I have had several. Daisy is my inspiration, mentor, and drill sergeant. Without her guidance, and reassurance I honestly think I would have quit the sport for good.
