A decision that had a huge impact on your life
When I was 12 years old, I joined the national equestrian circuit. I had been riding horses since I was very young, but this decision provided me with an incredible new challenge and a deep appreciation for the sport. For 10 years, I earned a path that taught me to dream big, set goals, manage both success and adversity, understand the art of discipline, and always value relationships.
