Horse: Spence Farms Shadow Dancer (aka “Gracie”), 9-year-old Drum horse mare
Kat started out showing in 4H as a teen, and a few years ago quit her job as a Cost Estimator in the automotive industry to focus on her true passion – breeding, showing, and selling horses with her husband. Kat started Gracie under saddle at the age of 8 years old, just over a year ago! Gracie is a quick learner with an eager personality and has excelled in halter and rail classes but seems to love tackling obstacles the most.
