My dad is the biggest heartwarming person and he is always there for me. He is my number one supporter, he has been there for everything. As parents do they help you grow and with the horses its just been great that he was previously into the horses. My dad rode appaloosas and got into showjumping and created a footing business and he's done some of the best horse shows in the country.

One of them was young riders 2015. I still have a mare horse, we were one of two to go double clean in the Nations Cup and we were team Bronze. We went into the final day in silver position, she was a great horse and that was a career changing moment.

No, showjumping for me was always the priority. At the end of the day I knew I would someday be a professional and one day attempt to make it at the top of the sport. I sat my parents down in fourth grade and told them I thought it'd be best that I was homeschooled so I could take the sport seriously. I started homeschooling in fourth grade and graduated high school at sixteen and told them that college wasn't in the cards for me. They said, ok if that's what you want to do, so very supportive.
