I have enjoyed riding many horses in several different disciplines for over 50 years now.  As a junior, I showed hunter/jumpers. Later in life I started to learn the basics of classical dressage.  Since I was riding Cloud in a western saddle on the trails, a friend told me about Cowboy Dressage four years ago and I’ve been “hooked” ever since.  I have won 4 CDW buckles and am proud to say that I came in 6th place in the Top Hand Open competition last year.  Cloud and I are part of the volunteer mounted park patrol for East Bay Regional Parks, camping partners in the Sierras and have even ridden in two parades this year.  We always focus on harmony and partnership!  Cloud truly is my “horse of a lifetime”.
