I grew up a horse crazy kid, when I was 10 I discovered Morgans and fell in love with this personable and versatile breed. I started taking lessons, and when I was 13 I got my first show horse, and I have been hooked ever since!
I showed all seats during my Junior Exhibitor career, competing in Equitation and pleasure classes, earning many regional and some National titles. However my favorite part was just being at the barn and helping with the horses.
After completing school at the University of Tulsa, I started working for Jonalyn Gwinup at Gwinfield Farms. I have been an integral part in many World Champion teams.
Although I have experience in virtually every discipline, my passion is with the Hunter and Western horses, especially bringing along the juvenile horse. I have been fortunate to train many nice young horses that have gone on to have successful show careers.
Since getting married and having my two girls, I have gotten to experience the joy of little kids and horses all over again. I love helping organize riding camps and birthday parties at the farm, and introducing new people of all ages to this wonderful breed.
