Rider Spotlight November 2016 - Kasara Monschke

Name:  Kasara


How long have you been riding?  How long have you been riding with Kim?

I begged my parents to start taking lessons when I was 8 and eventually persuaded them to buy me a horse at 11.  I rode frequently for the next 7 years until I left for college and then didn't ride at all for nearly 15 years before coming to ride with Kim.  I think I have been with Kim for about 5 years now.


What is your favorite discipline(s)?

 I like a little bit of everything: English, western, arena work and trail - I guess I would have to say I am happiest when I feel like I am connecting with my mount and we are working together and growing as a team and improving in whatever area we are working.
