Tell us about your current mount(s) and what you do with them:
I have a 12 year old Holsteiner mare named River Rocks (Roxy). I have only had her for 3 months and we have shown up to tadpole and schooled up to novice. She is such a good girl! I hope to qualify to go to dressage or show jumping for champs this year on her! But we mainly focus on eventing.
Tell us about your goals (with Pony Club, with riding, life):
I hope to qualify to go to Pony Club champs this year in show jumping. I hope to get my D-3 and then my C-1 certifications very soon!
