I was born and raised in Southern CA where my love of horses was nurtured by my long time horse loving family and I have since then followed in the footsteps of my very successful Mom who trains flat shod gaited horses. I have lived in Northern CA for about 8 years and train out of a beautiful facility in Herald/Galt.

For as long as I can remember (which is a really long time) I have always had a love for horses.  I enjoy trail riding, showing, clinics, and breed demo’s at the California State Fair annually to educate the public on the sound flat shod segment of the TWH.  Ride a TWH today and own one tomorrow!

I have been involved in the Tennessee Walking Horse industry for the past 25 years. My family started with a young gelding my daughter Hollie trained herself and went on to become a TWHBEA versatility Champion as well as winning several FOSH national championships. We currently own 4 Walkers and work to find homes for rescue Walking Horses. I am a founding member of FOSH and served as the director of horse show sanctioning for several years. I have produced everything from schooling shows to national championships across the U.S..Promotion of our wonderful breed has always been a passion for me!

I have been involved with the Walking Horse since 2000 and have never regretted a day! In probably less than six months from owning my first TWH I found myself showing in a Gaited Horse Show in Santa Rosa. I was hooked. I now have three Walking Horses, all spotted, and enjoy more than just horse shows with them. We trail ride and horse camp all over the Mother Lode area, ride in the local parade for years now, and represented the TWH/SSH at the Horse Expo. I have ridden my TWH Sundance in the Ride4MS, doing the 20 mile ride at Folsom Lake Trails to raise funds for MS; this mare is in her 20's!  Not only do I promote the sound, versatile TWH/SSH, I am also a trails advocate, member and past President of Meadow Vista Trails Association, helping to clear & maintain trails, work with County Parks supporting equestrian trails and lobby at the county level for new equestrian trails.  Every chance I get, I introduce a new person to the joys of owning a TWH and SSH!  As an NCWHA Board Member, I enjoy putting together the California Walk'N Newsletter and posting pictures to the NCWHA Facebook page!

​I have loved horses all of my life and I have had TWH's for about 13 years.  I have been involved with NCWHA since it conception and I was the  treasurer for several years. I have recently stepped down as the treaurer but I am still an active board member.  Both of my daughters compete nationally with their Tennessee Walking Horses and have done very well.

​I have been showing for over 30 years. Versatility is my passion and I have won two Youth Superior Championships and an Adult Supreme Championship through the TWHBEA. I show in all breed shows and participate in dressage, especially Cowboy Dressage. All of my horses at this time are amateur owned and trained. I am a lifetime member of NCWHA and TWHBEA and a member of WHOA. I have been on the NCWHA  board since the club was formed and I am a past president. I help manage the Oktoberfest Horse Show. I believe in the sound horse and have worked to end soring since I was aware of its existence.
