As an adult she has ridden under Kevin's guidance in the jumpers for over 20 years and has trained with many other professionals including Nona Garson, Rick Francher, Albert Voorn, John Ledingham and George Morris. As an amatuer rider she dedicated most of her time riding and training sale horses. As an adult jumper rider she qualified for Indoors twice in the NAL and also the Marshall and Sterling League and placed in both finals. She has competed various horses in jumper divisions through 1.30 and competed in several mini-prix before attending law school.
