Three years ago I was fortunate enough to purchase Mocha who had been a trail and lesson horse at the J6 Equestrian Center whom I was taking lessons on. Mocha did not like being a lesson horse, but I always felt from the start that we connected and that she wanted to perform for me. Due to Mocha's size it took me a long time to figure out what events Mocha and I enjoyed doing and Working Equitation has been so much fun that we have started taking it seriously. Mocha and I have really blossomed in the short time that we have been training at the J6 Equestrian Center under the tutelage of Katherine Calkins, Samantha Jepson and the other trainers. Seeing and experiencing the growth of Mocha's abilities has really inspired me to train even harder and to start advancing up the Working Equitation levels. Mocha and I are looking forward to competing at Nationals this year and we are thankful for having qualified.
