#26 Jumping for Joy

Sand Dollar Eventing in Eagle, Idaho
An Ohio native and lifelong horse enthusiast starting off in 4H, I’ve dabbled in hunter/jumper, eventing, competitive trail, horse camping and recreational trail riding. Above is my Chincoteague Pony, Sand Dollar. We were a team for 21 years. She passed in 2013. Fast forward over many years, and now in Spokane, I spend my horse days on the amazing trails here and in surrounding states, always looking for beautiful vistas and new areas to camp, ride and explore! I’m currently bringing along two 4-y.o. mares, one American Saddlebred (potential distance horse?) and one Draft mix of unknown breeding. My bay Morgan mare, Capy, has been my regular trail and camping companion for the past 2 years, and I take an occasional ride on my red and white pinto TWH mare, Delightful Playgirl, aka “PG”.
