What discipline(s)/class(es) do you show in and why did you choose that discipline or class(es)? I show Western Riding, Horsemanship, and Trail. I wanted to show western classes, so my sister recommended to me classes that she knew I would like and my horse would be successful in. What would be impossible for you to give up?

Emma Brown Age: 18 Where do you live and with who? I live in Zanesville, Ohio with my parents, Jim and Julie Brown. How did you get involved in horses? As an only child, I always did activities with my mom growing up, such as dance lessons. My dad decided that he also wanted something for the two of us to do, so he got me riding lessons at a local farm and I fell in love with it. That was when I was five, and things have escalated ever since. What disciplines/classes do you show in and why did you choose those disciplines/classes? I show in trail, showmanship, halter, western pleasure, and horsemanship  because I love being able to do multiple events. Specifically, I do the horsemanship to be able to ride on a team in college, and
