I've been riding and working with horses my entire life. In 2001 I went to the University of New Hampshire to pursue a Bachelors degree in Animal Science. While doing so I opened my first business; horse boarding, training, and sales, which I ran successfully for over 10 years. I purchased my first horse and partner of 14 years, Shady. Together we learned to event, successfully competing through Preliminary.
During those years I had the opportunity to learn not only to ride better, but to manage all aspects of the horse. Torrance Watkins, Olympic Gold medalist, was most influential, helping Shady and I achieve our goals.
I also continued my education, graduating from UNH with my MBA in 2014.
I began combining my knowledge, starting my own sales business in Equine Services and Products. I am excited to announce that my first product patent is being completed soon.
In 2015 I joined Stubben and Cavalor; using both to better the lives for horses and riders. It was also a life-changing year for Shady, as she became a mother. Indy was born in May and I have been loving every minute of working with him.
In 2017 I will be expanding my knowledge to include saddle flocking and repair. I am thrilled that I will be soon able to offer this service to my clientele!
