I’ve been in love with horses my whole life, but it wasn’t until I turned 30 that I was able to actively fold them into my life. Even then they were last on my list because I had a young family, a husband, and a full-time job. It took another eight to ten years before I could ride often and regularly. I bought my first horse in my late 40s. Soon after that, my husband bought us a house with acreage so that we could keep him at home. We then went from one horse to five horses over a period of several years.  

With age catching up to us, we started paring back to one horse. At least until late 2021. I bought a new horse and both horses are with my coach and trainer Carol Schmickrath at her training barn Brookstone Farm, Georgetown, TX. My older horse is a Dutch Warmblood imported from Holland and the new horse is a Hanoverian mare imported from Germany. I truly believe horses are magical. They have kept me sane, happy, and healthy.  Because of them, I have met so many wonderful people along the way.
