However, working with horses is my true PASSION.
I have grown up with horses all my life. I had ponies growing up and slowly moved to larger, faster horses. From local playdays and horse shows to 4-H and Little Britches Rodeo, I have participated in many different events such as showmanship, western pleasure, reining, barrel, & poles – though my favorites were the speed events. I also tried my hand at breakaway roping and goat tying when I had the chance.
I absolutely would not be the person I am today without horses, and I aim to keep them a significant part of my life.
"If you do what you love, you'll never work a day in your life."
From a very young age, I had the dream to work with horses as a future career. While in high school, I somewhat strayed from this idea because I realized that it might not be entirely lucrative and successful in my area. Following my equine internship with Bogie Webb of Webb Ranches the summer before my sophomore year of college, I realized the value of doing something that one loves for the rest of one's life. I intend to fulfill the above quote in my own life. Doing what one loves in life causes the results to be even better for those they do it for. I hope to give good quality horses to customers that they will enjoy for a long time.
I grew up on a farm in Northeast Nebraska (Pierce), where my family raised crops (corn, soybeans, & some hay) and cow/calf pairs. I graduated from South Dakota State University in Brookings, SD, in December 2016. I majored in Ag Science with minors in Equine Studies, Animal Science, Agronomy, and Range Science. I now reside on my family's ranch southwest of Johnstown, NE, where I manage our small herd of cattle with my husband, Randy Wood.
