class of 2023 | reining
I am a junior at Connersville Senior High School in Connersville, Indiana. I have been riding competitively for seven years now. I am a member of NRHA, AQHA, USA Reining, KyQHA, APHA, and PHBA. I am also involved in Harness Racing and own a racehorse. I am a nine-year member in 4H. I was in the National Junior Honor Society. I am a part of the National Society of High School Scholars, Early College High School, and I compete with the Connersville Senior High School Advanced Choir.
I train with Shawn Flarida for Reining, which is my main event, but in the past, I trained
with Cheryl Daggy for Horsemanship, Equation, Hunter Under Saddle, Pleasure,
Showmanship, Trail, Western Riding. I train with Cheryl Daggy now for Ranch. Although
I did all these events in the past, reining is by far my favorite and I want to compete in it
