I have loved horses from my earliest memories. After years of watching from afar, I began riding at the age of 10. From that time, horses have always been a part of my life.  I have been a member of CDS for approximately 25 years, with my participation ebbing and flowing as other work/life responsibilities took precedence.  

I am now retired from a 30 year career at UC Davis, and live with my husband Stan in the hills of Vacaville.  We have country property that allows me to have my horses at home as well as board a few horses too!

I currently am riding a 7 year old Hanoverian mare "Fabrizia".  We competed this past year at 1st level and are schooling 2nd level with hopes of competing at that level next year.  I also have a 5 year old homebred mare "ReJoyce". We haven't competed yet, but hope to next year.  I never thought I would have a redheaded mare, and now I have two and love them both.
