I was born and raised in Provo, Utah. My parents didn't have much experience with horses, but noticed how excited I would get as a toddler whenever we would see one. I started riding at four, and the rest is history.
When I was 14, I was offered my very first job starting welsh ponies for a local breeder. I attended a few clinics with a local horseman who worked with this style of horsemanship, but the light bulb moment came for me when I watched Buck ride his bridle horse Arc in 2012. Ever since, it's all I've ever wanted to do. I'm so grateful and so excited to see what the future holds with this incredible scholarship opportunity.
