Stephanie started riding horses at 6 years old tearing around in the jumper ring. Throughout her youth she dabbled with hunter/jumpers and eventing, but soon found the love of dressage to help develop her Thoroughbred, Bentley. After taking a break from riding through undergrad and grad school, Stephanie returned to the saddle after purchasing her horse Chocolat and training exclusively in Dressage. Stephanie and Chocolat (Coco) continue to work up the levels to further understand the concepts of classical dressage. Their next goal is to move to Intermediare 1 in the coming show season. Stephanie continues to stay involved in the equestrian community serving on the board of High Plains and participating and offering educational events throughout the year.
