That was the okay, “we’re capable of this”. The horse is incredible. We need to keep it going and set goals. I thought, if I can win a million-dollar grand price without doing this full time, then I think I owe it to myself and my horse to give it my undivided attention. That was the beginning of it all.

Horses are just one part of our life, but we love the sport. He’s a professional, and I do this as an amateur. So, to be able to share our love and passion for horses with each other is just incredible.
