What are your Passions?

From a very young age I've always loved horses. I grew up with my neighborhood sharing a fence of a large equine showing/boarding facility, and often got in trouble for sneaking over there to just look at horses. My parents enrolled me in summer riding camp there, and the rest was history. I started out riding primarily English, doing Hunter jumper and a bit of eventing. I got my first horse at 18, and did everything from local shows, to trail rides and barrel races with him. He came down with EPM and we ended up retiring him. I got involved and am currently involved in AQHA showing all-around. I've now had the privilege of taking two off-track thoroughbreds and retraining them, along with barrel racing on my quarter horse mare. My fiance and I own 3 horses. Guinness is an OTTB and my fiances steady eddy. Bling and Voodoo are my 2 horses I am currently training to compete on this year.

 

What results are you getting or hope to get with 522 products?

For my gelding Bling I'm looking for more focused and less anxious energy, and my mare Voodoo I I'm looking for more muscle tone and stamina

 

If sponsored by 522 Health, how do you plan to Share Your Passion for complete health.

I am active on Facebook and Instagram, as well as active in some of the local and bigger barrel racing associations in the area. I am also willing to put patches on shirts and/or logos on trucks and trailers

 

Room for More! (Interesting stories; unique qualities; something you would like to add.)

Both my horses are on grain-free diets. Bling has been my trouble child a bit, we've been fighting ulcers, recovering from hurricane Harvey, and recovering from what could of been a career ending pasture injury. I'm excited to finally get him going!
