Kate Muldrew

class of 2022  |  western reining

Brooklet, Georgia

I am Kate Muldrew, a rising junior from Brooklet Georgia, and member of Flamekissed Equestrian Show Team & IEA Team. I have been competing in some capacity from the age of 5, starting with Flamekissed drill team and show team for local shows. I have been seriously working to achieve my goal of riding collegiately since I entered middle school. Riding and showing horses has always been my greatest passion. I have ridden a variety of horses in my youth experience, and although I have not owned my own show horse, my parents have leased the best show horse we could find under the guidance of my coaches, Amanda and Dennis Pope. In riding a variety of horses, I have enjoyed learning how to work with horses of different skill levels, training styles, and temperaments. I have participated in the American Ranch Horse Association for 4 years. Through ARHA and the wide range of classes it offers, I have sharpened my skills, and has stretched me to become more well-rounded. This experience of working to understand a horse, either quickly in an IEA show or over time at home, has become my favorite part of being a horsewoman. I was able to attend the University of South Carolina Camp in December 2019 and had plans to attend other camps which were unfortunately canceled due to the COVID-19 Pandemic.
