RRP TBMakeover 2016

I am one of 480 trainers chosen for the 2016 Retired Racehorse Project's Thoroughbred Makeover.  I am entered as a professional with my primary discipline as eventing and secondary as dressage.  Time will tell what my chosen partner excels at though, and he will ultimately choose what divisions we enter for the competition in October.  Here is a link to our page on the RRP website.
