Hi, and thank you so much for your interest in the horsehair jewelry I create. I thought that I would write a bit about myself since you all share so much with me. I was born and raised in Gunnison, Colorado. I started riding at the age of 2 and started competing at the age of 2 1/2, showing my mom’s old barrel horse from college. Ben was the best old man, he was the first horse that I can remember riding and my first love.
My mom started a horse ranch called Marmot Mountain Ranch. Being an only child growing up, my horses were my entertainment, my companions, and most of all, my friends. I grew to have a great love and respect for the horse.
Growing up, I participated in 4-H, FFA, and competed in riding cutting horses. At age 11, I bought my first horse that was all mine. Slaton’s Doc, but to me he was Brownie. He was the horse that helped me through the hard times of growing up. I loved him more than ANYTHING. I truly gained the realization of what magnificent animals horses really are. Continuing to show in the cutting arena, I lost Brownie when I was 18. He developed a tumor in his spine. Destroyed by the loss of him, I did not touch another horse for two years. Then Salson was born…
