If you could trade lives with one person for an entire day, who would it be and why?
If I could trade lives with anyone for an entire day, I would choose to trade with my once-in-a-lifetime horse, Lady. I would like to experience life from her perspective so that I could better provide for her in retirement. It would also be an honor to know how it feels to be a National Champion from her perspective. And horses are the perfect live-in-the-present beings...they have no concern for the past or the future, only right now.
What accomplishment are you most proud of?
Becoming a National Champion Equestrienne and a fierce World Champion competitor with my show horses!

If you could give your 13 year old self advice, what would it be?
Take advantage of every opportunity to spend time with your parents and grandparents that you are given. The wisdom they have to share is priceless and once they are gone from this Earth, you can't get those chances back.
