I was born and raised along with two older brothers in the rolling hills of Longview, Alberta where my parents trained hunter/jumpers, pleasure horses and ran a few cows.
I started showing before I could even walk and by the time I was 6 years old I was showing cutting horses in youth classes. From there I did a little bit of everything from hunter/jumpers, pleasure horses, barrel racing, team roping and cutting.
When I was about 13 I started showing in the working cow horse and matured into a successful Nonprofessional around the year 2000. I worked under my older brother John, learning and honing my skills, developing my own training technique.
In the summer of 2011, with a great deal of non-pro success behind me, I decided to take the step and turn Professional.
These last few years my main focus has been in the barrel racing, cutting, and working cow horse where I have competed in everything from World's Greatest Horseman to Snaffle Bit Futurities.
Confident in my own abilities and knowledge, I still actively seek out advice from those I respect and admire, and I strongly believe in being open to new ideas, methods and opinions. Unable to resist a challenge, I am always learning and striving for bigger and better things.
My longtime show mount, Will James Smokey AKA "Zorro" still going strong at 21 (he still thinks he's a spring chicken). He is every little girls dream; To have a horse that trusts you more then anyone else and would do anything for you.
