Becoming a Cowgirl Chick has been such a delight and honor. Having the ability to ride all over the country showing how we can make a difference whether it is in the arena or in the fight for cancer. We can all make a difference.
I learned to ride at age 10 shortly after my mother died. She loved the horse and showed me the same love. I hope to show that same love to my daughter. I have been very blessed in life to have been given a wonderful husband and daughter who support me in all I do. They are my love, my life, and my everything. Without them, I would have nothing.
I have also had the pleasure in teaching therapeutic riding for several years which was so rewarding. With the horse, we were able to show handicapped children and adults find through the love a horse that he or she could walk when life says they can't. Their smiles alone would melt your heart. My hat is off to those who continue this work.
Having been a part of rodeos and drill teams since 1997, I have learned so much. People have such a great pride for our flag and our country. Since I am unable to serve for my country, this is an awesome way to serve my country as my father and grandfather served in the Navy. Every time I ride, I ride to honor them, my husband and my daughter.
My dream is to show all the spectators how with the love of a family and horses, you can achieve your dreams. With hard work, determination, and clear cut goals, you can achieve anything you set your mind to. When things are tough, pray hard and Lord will see you through. And remember "Never Give Up."
"We continually remember before our God and Father your work produced by faith, your labor prompted by love, and your endurance inspired by hope in our Lord Jesus Christ."
1 Thessalonians 1:3
