Although I was always a horse enthusiast, I didn't begin riding until I was 25. In the past I did lower level eventing. For about 10 years now I've focused on dressage. I'm currently venturing into 2nd level with my daughter's former jumper, Marcus.

I have always had a passion for horses and have been lucky enough to have been riding for most of my life. I am currently participating in USDF’s “L Program,” earning scores towards my Bronze and Silver medals, and constantly exploring new ways to further my knowledge in dressage!

I enjoy my horse, Paolo, a Hanoverian gelding, home breed FEI horse. I currently compete and manage dressage shows as well as the chapater schooing shows and clinics.

Horses are a passion, I'm always pursuing how to be a better rider/horse lover.  I've been part of the Ventura Chapter CDS since 1991.  I just love being part of CDS with my fellow horse lovers!

I’ve been riding or wanting to ride since I saw my first horse as a preschooler. I am currently showing my Thoroughbred /Appaloosa mare at 3rd level, making steady but slow progress and hoping to advance next year. In my other life, I work full time as a physical therapist.

A choreographer, dancer, fundraising professional for nonprofits, and dressage competitor, Aria manages our schooling shows at Faith Ranch in Somis. She has successfully rehabbed her partner for life, Hanoverian mare Fogata Del Jardin, from a serious injury and getting ready to compete once again.
