  • Trained one Jr. rider through her USDF Bronze and Silver Medal and another through her USDF Bronze medal. A third was NCDCTA 2nd level year end champion in both the regular jr. division and in the musical freestyle division. The first rider was also reserve champion in Region 1 in the 11 and under division of Dressage Seat Equitation on her pony who also received the “Seldom Scene” trophy from the Lendon Gray youth festival that year, and then finished 8th in the country in the National championships of the same division on a borrowed mount. On her next mount, which I helped her find, she went on to finish 11th at the Gladstone Festival of Champions in the FEI Jr. division and be a member of the Region 1 NAJRYRC Bronze medal team.
