Q: What do you like to do when you are not riding?

Q: Who is your role model?

Q: How do you prepare for a competition?
A: "There's always a lot of practice beforehand, but when it comes down to the day of the meet, I go through the patterns in my head to make sure I know what I'm doing. I mentally think about the horse that I've drawn and try to get myself in the zone. I always love to listen to my iPod."
Q: How do you think fans play a role in equestrian?
A: "Fans play a huge role. Equestrian is still a growing sport, but not a whole lot of people know about it. Having fans come out and getting word of mouth around is a great thing for the sport and a great thing for our team because we really do get pumped up by fans being there. The little kids love it so much, and it's just a joy to have people there that support our sport and have a love for horses like we do."
Q: If there were no horses, what animal should be used instead?
