Natalie Hilty

Name: Natalie Hilty

Age: 14


Where do you live and with whom: 

I live in Huber Heights on a farm with both my parents, my younger sister, and a bunch of animals.


Other current activities:

I play tennis & ride with a rodeo drill team.


What would be impossible for you to give up?

My family and my animals.


Tell us something that no one knows about you.

Well I'm pretty much an open book, but I absolutely love style and fashion.


Where can we find you when not at a horse show?

Playing tennis, working on the farm, or shooting pictures with my Nikon camera.


Where do you see yourself in 5 years?

I'm hopeful that I'll be winning some things at the Congress.


How did you get involved in horses?

My mom found an online site for Sullenburger Stables in Piqua about 5 years ago, and we got started in 4-H. 


If you could ride any horse, who would it be and why?

I would definitely ride my horse, Max, because he probably has the smoothest ride I've ever ridden. He's like my gentle giant because he's about 17 hands tall.


What is a goal that you want to accomplish during your youth career?  

I'd like to become more involved in the associations I'm apart of and continue to grow as a rider.
