"I grew up showing Arabian horses. I still ride when I have time. My two daughters, Becky and Sabrina both ride too. Becky rides for Jonathan Sheppard and is now pursuing her career as an Equine Dentist! My younger daughter, Sabrina, is just starting her rodeo career in the PA High School Rodeo doing barrels and poles, which is a big jump from the Pony Club world she grew up with!"

"We live on a farm with horses, four dogs, three cats, ducks, peacocks, chickens, a goat and a pig!" 

"You have seen both my girls on the covers of Perri's Leather Catalogs!"

"I was fortunante enough to grow up on a large boarding and competition farm and was on a horse before I could walk!" My best trip with horses was in 2000. I got to travel to Japan for The Nakayama Grand Jump with Ninepins. That's him in the picture at 23! Having gone from Pony Club to eventing with Bruce Davidson to race horses with Jonathan Sheppard, I decided it was time for a change. It's been an adjustment switching to the inside part of the horse industry but I love it! It gives me more time to spend with my son, who is an future Eagle Scout!"

"I grew up as a barn brat, spending my evenings and weekends helping lesson kids, doing chores and riding! I competed in the local hunter circuit, but quickly fell in love with Jumpers in college. I have a Welsh/QH cross pony, Finch who is my heart horse. When I’m not riding, I love watching Netflix with my wife, going to the beach, and playing with our other pets (two guinea pigs and a hedgehog)."

"I started out showing Appaloosa horses on the breed circuit when I was five years old.  From there I moved on to barrel racing.  I was looking for more excitement!   I qualified for the NBHA world championships 2 years in a row with my Thoroughbred ex-racehorse.  

Although I no longer ride I still have two horses and three ponies that I enjoy caring for everyday.  Spending time in the barn is one of my favorite things. 

I live in Nottingham with my family and a menagerie of animals."

"I don’t know much about horses but I am learning more every day.  I am a dog lover. I have rescued 3 dogs and my newest addition is a saint Bernard/English mastiff mix (Toby) in addition to my shepherd mix (Shane) and black lab mix (Duncan). I’m pretty sure I work just to feed these 3!  I am the proud mom of 2 daughters and grand mom to 2 grandsons.  In my free time I love going to the beach and being with my family."

I have escaped from the corporate rat race, and am enjoying semi-retirement as an engraver and warehouse worker at Perri's Leather. Over the years I have owned Palominos, Quarter Horses and Paints and enjoy showing in the Western and Showmanship classes at the breed shows.

My favorite quote is "Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in an attractive and well preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, chocolate in one hand, champagne in the other, body thoroughly used up, totally worn out and screaming "Woo Hoo what a ride!"

Security Guard, Official Snack Tester, Moral Support Coach & Perri's Leather Canine Supermodel

"I have the hardest job of the whole Perri's Family! Not only do I keep my team safe from the mailman, delivery guys and whoever else comes into my building, I also make sure everyone's snacks and lunches are up to my very rigorous taste standards. When I've made sure everyone is safe, I make my rounds through the office and warehouse, checking that whole team is having the best day possible! You may also recognize me as the Top Model for the Perri's Leather Canine Line! I tell you, if everyone around here worked as hard as I do, there would be a whole lot more time for snack and belly rub breaks! "

Resident trouble maker and assistant moral support coach

"My job around the office is VERY important. First, I make my rounds  and make sure everyone is smiling! Then, I help keep Elvis young by playing with him. He doesn't seem to enjoy this as much as I do, but that's what little sisters are for, right?! By mid-afternoon you can find me snoring in the sun...a lady needs her beauty sleep! When it's time to go home, sometimes I try to catch a ride home with one of my coworkers. It never seems to work, but I keep trying! It's a hard office dog life being this cute, but someone's got to do it.
