"Working with horses since the age of six, I have had the pleasure of getting an unparalleled education from some of the best horsemen and women on the East Coast. As I think back at all the opportunities that I was able to take advantage of, I know I am truly blessed to have had the amazing people in my life to help guide my path down this road I've taken." - Tara
