Teresa is a lifelong Ohio resident that began riding at the age of 5.  She spent three years schooling hunter jumpers under the tutelage of Sue Black.  While in college at Miami University, she began riding Dressage.  She schooled with Alexandra Myers, Elaine Gibala and Lara Kernan.  Unfortunately, Teresa lost her horse to colic and ended up taking some time off from equestrian pursuits before purchasing her Western Dressage horse, Stori. Teresa is currently working on her Western Dressage “r” judging certification.
