My name is Isabella Laguna. My horse’s name is Lydia, (AKA A Passin Touch) and Roxy, (AKA Unforgettable Ralph).
My mom first put me up on a horse for a trail ride. I have been showing for 11 years. My trainers are my mom and Kate Sharkey for jumping.
I enjoy competing in Ranch Riding because it has quite a few different paces and it has an interesting rhythm. I have been with my horses for my whole life they are about the same age as me.
Outside of the barn I enjoy cross country and playing with my animals. My favorite subjects in school are Science, Spanish, and Choir.
If my horses could talk one would say, “Just give me food” and the other one would say “OH MY GOSH!! WHAT IS THAT?!?!
IS IT GOING TO MURDER ME??? OK…OK. I’M COOL
I’M COOL. JUST KIDDING IT IS STILL THERE!!!!”
My idol is Clinton Anderson because he is very gentle and kind when training his horses but is still strict.
What are your goals this show season?
My goals this show season are to become a better Ranch Pleasure rider and to show in the jumper ring. I started jumping with my horse Roxy, and I love it!
