 How it started...

I’ve been riding horses since I was a very young child. I loved all sorts of animals, and at some point decided to go to college and obtain my bachelors of science degree In Agricultural science/pre-veterinary medicine from Tennessee State University. 

After I graduated, I got married, had four children, and supported my husband during his career as an NFL player for 8 years.

 Why...

I had the opportunity to spend some quality time with God on my mind and my bible in my hand and I kept hearing, get back the saddle.

So I obeyed.

 Meant to be...

We found our farm, built a barn and needed to put a horse in it. 

 

I was literally just needing a quarter horse to ride on the trails on occasion and maybe run fast in some barrel racing from time to time, but I rode my first reining horse, Cope, and that was all she wrote.

 

I fell in love with horsemanship!

So here I am...

Since that encounter, I’ve been certified and accredited by Lyons Legacy.
