Don’t Let This Feeling Fade

This has been an amazing year to say the least with this amazing horse. Finishing 8th at Rolex Kentucky CCI****, becoming an Alternate for the 2016 Rio Olympics, and placing 14th and top American at our very first Burghley CCI****. A big thank you to everyone who has supported us along the way, especially my syndicate owners : Vicki Larson Sukup and Steve Sukup, Kal Loveless, and Susan Day and Jonathan Easterling. This would not be possible with out you all. My sponsors: Buckey Nutrition, Soteria Equestrian Safety, One K Helmets, Ecogold Equestrian Textile Engineering, Choice of Champions, Custom Saddlery, Treadstep Ireland, Rose Equestrian, Giddy Up Gear, Equiflexsleeve, VeruGreen Naturals, Rather Be Riding Photography, Horses ‘n’ Motion, Amanda Moretz Bodyworks, Holly Breaux Chiropractic, my vets Dr. Nash, my farrier Chase New, and everyone who has donated to help me fulfill my dreams.

I’m so thankful especially for my pillars of support: Timothy Harfield, Rick Wallace, Karen O’Connor, Rosemarie Spillane, Loreen Kay, Aly Rattazzi, Calandra Coon, Laura Youngblood Carithers, Braden Wallace, Rebecca Bowman, and Kathy Quinn Clark. I can not really put into words how much Johnny means to me, he truly is SIMPLY PRICELESS. And in making this video I was inspired by the passion of the sport of Eventing, the love of an incredible horse, and the amazing community that supports me! Johnny and I have attained some of my biggest dreams this year and with many more to come, I’m really excited for 2017!

American Ninja Warrior Training: Wild Mustang Edition

This week I took Sparks to the Bartow County Saddle Club to participate in an obstacle clinic organized by my good mustang trainer friends Stan Smith and Rebecca Bowman. I was delighted to spend some time with my friends Cavin Graham and Cindy Brasfield as well. I tried something a little new with the vlog this week, providing extensive commentary on my training process throughout the day. I hope it is interesting, enjoyable, and maybe even a little helpful.
