Faith started riding horses when she was about 3 years old. She began showing in the lead line classes on her sister's horse, Bud, and the love for horses all started from there! 

She has shown in multiple divisions: stock horse, western, English, and Halter. She has also had experience in training in reining, as well!

She has shown three horses in her lifetime: Aggie, an APHA sorrel paint mare that she showed in the western classes; Kite, an AQHA sorrel gelding, that she showed in the stock horse and English classes; and Gus, an AQHA bay gelding, who she shown in the all-around! 

Faith has also competed on an IEA equestrian team named the "Sassy Senoritas", where she competed in the JV Novice division. Her team qualified for Zones in 2017 and qualified for Semi-Finals and Zones in 2018. She qualified as an individual for Semi-finals in 2018 and she hopes to qualify for the regional show this year in my division and her long term goal is to ride in the reining.
