My first experience with NLVRHA was at a joint show and schooling competiton held in Afton Iowa. NLVRHA is a low stress fun way to start showing horses. No one is a stranger in this group and you'll find a helping hand and smiling face everywhere you turn. It's a wonderfully helpful organization for a newbie like me to learn new skills.
My husband and I live in southern Iowa near Seymour Iowa. We have two sons, Tuff (22) and Colt (20). I rented my first piece of land at 14 years old, and have been farming ever since. It's been my focus and my passion. We raise cattle corn beans and wheat.
My father always had horses for us to ride. He and I green broke three or four horses every year, until he passed away and gave me his mare herd, I am continuing that tradition. With the boys joining our farm operation my husband and I have found time to enjoy trail riding in the last few years.
I will help where ever I can to make this organization run smoothly, and bring the fun wherever I can.
