"I have done a few shows this summer and I'm actually at one right now! I am showing a three-year-old mare by a sire named Colonels Smoking Gun AKA "Gunner".

"Right now, I am preparing to show in Futurities, which helps my horse prepare for Reining by the Bay in a few weeks. It will be the debut of my three-year-old mare! I am very excited to show her for the first time and have a successful run!" 

Which three items would you bring if you had to live on a deserted island?
"I would bring my dog, a tooth brush and water."

What is one thing most people don't know about you?
"My first language was Spanish because I had a Spanish nanny when I was little." 

What has been the highlight of your equestrian career thus far?
"I feel like I have had many highs on the equestrian team this year, but my biggest one probably has to be getting Big 12 Rider of the Month!" 

Where is your favorite place to be in the entire world?
"My favorite place is on a horse because it just feels natural." 

What is the best thing about being a part of TCU equestrian?
"The best thing about being a part of TCU equestrian has to be my teammates because of the support and time is tremendous!"
