I was born in Germany and moved to the United States in 1970. In 1998, the year I turned 50, my wife and I started to take riding lessons. First at the Winton Woods Riding Center, which is a part of the Hamilton County Park system, then later at Old Stone Riding Center in Millville, Ohio.

One of the horses I rode in lessons there was a young Quarter Horse named Doc's Drifting Star. He is now semi-retired, but still sound for light work. It took the two of us only a short while to work together again for the Century Club ride.

Over the years, I have ridden Western, dressage, some low-level jumping, Western dressage and even some medieval equestrian games.
