Hello Everyone, I’m very excited to join in the Top Hand Competition with many friends. I’ll be riding my 14 yr old AQHA Joe Blue Hancock. “Joe” and I competed in the Cowboy Dressage Finals in 2014, taking home the Soft Feel Vaquero Buckle, the High Point Buckle Vaquero division, Reserve Musical Freestyle, Reserve Highest Score of the Show, and Reserve Overall High Point for the 2014 Cowboy Dressage ® Finals.
Each competition and ride is a new day, a new beginning, a fresh start, of what may be, what dream can come true finding the balance and harmony between “Joe” and I. “Joe” gives everything a rider could ask from his heart, he humbles me with his try and his work ethic.
I’ve dedicated years of learning from wonderful mentors, combining my groundwork , liberty work with ranch work, competitive trail and Cowboy Dressage ® to help the horses be balanced with mind and body.
Many years ago I followed my heart, my dream to share my knowledge and passion with others. I focused on introducing youth riders to the wonderful world of horses and ponies, with an emphasis on safety and quality horsemanship. Last year my student (Avril, age12) of 8 years won the overall High Point for the 2014 Cowboy Dressage Finals, I couldn’t have been more proud of her and her dedication to her wonderful partner, Myla Star.
This year I’m so very proud to have 2 of my employees, McKenzie and Jadon, of Western Sky Horsemanship also join in the Top Hand Competition on client horses. With the dedication and hard work with team Western Sky we now introduce riders of all ages to the wonderful world of horses with an emphasis on balance, softness, harmony in each partnership, Cowboy Dressage ® gives us a wonderful venue to showcase what we believe. Come cheer us on!!
