It all began when she was 5 years old. KC sat on a pony named Chief and from that day onward, horses became her life. She began as a Western rider and was called "Wild Woman" at the age of 10 for being the only person able to fire up a pony named Shaloco for barrel racing. It was then at age 10 that KC decided she wanted to ride in the Olympics - and since there was no Olympic sport for barrel racing, she had to switch to something equally as thrilling - Eventing.
KC had the opportunity to train with many Olympic and International Eventing and Dressage riders, including USEF Dressage Chef D'Equipe Anne Gribbons, Olympic Medalist David O'Connor, Olympic Medalist Michael Page, Carol Kozlowski, US Eventing Chef D'Equipe Captain Mark Phillips, Olympic Medalist Ian Stark, and Olympic Medalist Kerry Milikin.
KC's found that her real passion lies in working with green and inexperienced horses, from the beginning moments of saddle breaking to helping them realize their own potential in the sport or activity they're best suited for.
