My name is Lauren I am 14 years old. I have been riding horses since I was 5. My favorite type of equitation is western, but I enjoy riding English and bareback. When I first started riding, I really enjoyed the happiness that I felt while in the saddle. I find riding therapeutic and fun. I started taking lessons and wanted to try every style to see which one fit me the best. I love to trail ride and canter; my trainer calls me “the cantering queen”. I am entering 9th grade this year and excited for my high school experience. I have a female cockatiel that is my best friend. I have only had her for about a year, but I am a huge animal lover and enjoy her company. When I am not at the barn cleaning stalls, feeding, or dumping water buckets I am a normal teenager. I enjoy listening to music, reading books, educating myself on horses and learning how to be a better rider. I also enjoy playing volleyball, video games and hanging out with my friends being goofy. I am excited to be a part of the Renegade drill team because it’s a comfortable environment where I feel welcome and I get the opportunity to do what I love most in life!
