Good luck charm: “I have a different pair of lucky spurs for each of my horses.”
Most embarrassing moment: “When I showed Mario in the children’s jumpers for the first time, I couldn’t get him to walk into the ring so after many attempts I had to dismount and then get on him in the show ring.”
Fun Fact: “I can understand hockey as well as any NHL-loving spectator.”
Hardest Lesson: “My hardest lesson was with Frank about two weeks before Devon this year. Frank really wanted to work on flatwork and testing.”
