“I am a very happy girl when I am with my family and my animals;

I love to create things and watch them grow;

I love the gift of wisdom as you get older.
My words to live by: Patience, Perseverance, Balance, Listen, Less is More!"

"I grew up showing Arabian horses. I still ride when I have time. My two daughters, Becky and Sabrina both ride too. Becky owns Becky Mark Equestrian and is also an Equine Dentist! My younger daughter, Sabrina, works as an esthetician. 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 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!"

"I grew up with a love of horses that never went away. During middle and high school, I Evented with my heart horse, Stryder, before taking a break during college. I found myself in sunny Florida after graduating, where we spent a few years focusing on dressage, but now both enjoy the quiet life going on trail rides and occasionally popping over cross rails. When I'm not at the barn, you can find me curled up on the couch with a book and my Boxer dog, Tobin."

"Growing up on a family farm in Indiana, I was lucky to have parents that supported my love of horses. My parents purchased my first American Paint Horse when I was 12 years old and I haven’t looked back. I’ve competed as a youth and amateur all around exhibitor and have been fortunate to earn several APHA World and All Around titles but what I love the most is raising these horses on my farm to either show myself or to watch as others reach their own dreams. If I’m not with the horses, I’m spending time with my family at numerous sporting events. My husband and I are lucky to have 3 active kids that are involved in all kinds of sports ranging from hockey and football to softball and volleyball.  They also love the horses and are starting to get involved with them as well.
