    My grandfather, because he blessed me with the opportunity to grow up around nice horses. He passed his passion for horses and all things western on to me. Although I disagree with many of his choices, I will always be thankful for that opportunity.

    My biggest influence is a man named Johnny Clark. He moved on to be sort of a bigger-name trainer around here, became very popular and got very busy. But when he was first starting out as a "horse trainer," he was employed by my grandpa to take care of his horses. He started a lot of the horses that we still have today, and consider our "bomb proof" trail horses. He also gave me lessons while I was growing up. My sisters, cousins, and I all took lessons from him, but out of 10 grandkids, I was the only one who stuck with it. I was a horse crazy little girl, and still am today. I continued learning with Johnny for several more years. I attended a few of his clinics when he got to be more popular, and I can basically accredit the fundamentals of my riding to him. He models after Buck Brannaman and Ray Hunt, and he not only taught me how to ride, but taught me horsemanship. I am so grateful I had the opportunity to learn from one of the best, and I plan on teaching my kids how to ride using the same things he taught me.
