Age: 14 Horse: Beechcraft (Baron)
Currently training to qualify for the 2019 NAYC CCI**
I am 14 years old and Baron is a 10-year-old OTTB (off the track thoroughbred). He was restarted and trained up to the preliminary level when I got him, November 2017. At this time, I had only competed through the novice level but was ready to step up to training level with a horse that could take me even farther. Baron has been the best gift I have ever received. He has taught me so much and taken me such a long way in a very short amount of time. Crazy to think in less than a years time, we went from competing at novice to successfully cruising around preliminary. He is such an amazing horse and he always gives everything he has plus more. He has been the best teacher and we both continue to learn every day. This has always been a dream of mine and hopefully one day it will come true. If I am not chosen this year to compete, I would still like to go as an alternate or a groom and help out the team.
