My name is Katie Schols and my horse’s name is EverybodyLuvsKrymsun (aka Raymond)! This is going to be our third season showing together. My trainers are Kip Larson and Michael Davis of Larson Performance Horses.
I started riding because both of my parents rode, and it's something that I've been around my whole life. I started taking lessons when I was eight but was put on the back of a horse from the time I was born!
I've been showing for 9 years. My favorite classes to compete in are Western Riding and Horsemanship because they are both so technical. I love watching a horse and rider who can really make patterns flow beautifully.
Outside of the barn I enjoy showing cattle and riding my other horse Hank around our property and on trails! My favorite subject in school is science because I love solving problems and figuring out how things work. I also love making things go BOOM!
My mom is my idol because she's the strongest person I know. She is also my biggest supporter in and out of the show pen. Without her, many of the things I do would not be possible and I hope that I can be half of the person she is when I'm older.
My goal this year is to strengthen my scores in Western Riding and really become more of a team with my horse. I am also very involved with WSQHYA.
