graduated from the MTSU horse program with a b.s. degree in animal science
in 1977. In the early eighties, I resumed my interest in pleasure
horses and founded , with three of my friends, the Pleasure
Walking Horse Association of Tennessee (PWHAT) .
||A native of Morgan County, Alabama, My
first registered Tennessee Walking Horse came to me in 1965 when my father
purchased a six year old padded stallion for me, his 9 year old daughter.
This sounds like a recipe for disaster, but he was an exceptional horse
and made the perfect horse for me. I developed an interest in showing,
first in pleasure classes, then in padded classes.
I have owned and operated my present
training stable since 1985. Some of the notable horses that I have
trained include Generatorís Souvenir, Go Mr..Go and most recently, Reverend
Moon. I use lots of natural horsemanship and dressage techniques
in my training program.
This interest in classical dressage led
me to become interested in the Andalusian Horse, and I currently have some
Andalusians in training as well as the Walkers.
I feel that we need to promote the sound,
natural horse as a show and trail horse, and most of all, enjoy the fellowship
and team work with each other.
