I am a USDF L Graduate With Distinction as well as a USDF Bronze medalist, and I am available for judging schooling shows throughout Michigan and the Midwest. Since 2011, I have traveled to judge many competitions in the region, including shows in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana. In 2018, I am scheduled to judge shows throughout Michigan and Indiana.
I have been riding for 23 years, starting out in the hunter/jumper world, and have studied dressage with such dressage icons as Maryal Barnett, Jan Ebeling, and, currently, Ruth Hill-Schorsch. I have retired my Prix St.Georges Thoroughbred, Lord Kenmer and have a Holsteiner-cross, Shorty, that I am currently rehabbing. I am also riding an Oldenburg mare, Winnalee Z, that I began showing in 2018. Whinny will make her Second level debut in the summer of 2019.

My judging goal is to move forward with my credentials by earning my USEF ‘r’ judging license by 2019. To further this goal, I re-tested at HITS on the Hudson in Saugerties, New York, in September of 2014, earning my L Grad with Distinction. I am working towards earning the ‘r’ program score requirements of five scores of 65% or higher at Fourth level or above.
