801.540.2724

I was raised on the East Coast and attended Virginia Intermont College as a Showing and judging major. I was a B pony clubber with the British Horse Society. That was back in 1994-1997. I competed extensively on the East coast circuit in both Hunter and Jumper. I did some horse trials, as well as foxhunting, eventing and dressage events. I have been judging for the last couple of years locally. I have judged for intercollegiate shows for USU as well as the 4-H state dressage show in Grantsville in 2008. My expertise is in the English discipline, although I do have some experience judging reining, showmanship, trail, western equitation.
