Meet the Stampede!!! With show season swinging back into gear, we’re continuing our posts highlighting our members.
This go around we have one of our wonderful instructors & Barn Manager Emmie!
Name: Emmie Gross
How long have you been riding: About 11 years now
How long have you been a member of Team Stampede: Almost 10 years, I'm forever a barn rat!
What do you like about Team Stampede:
It's a family, these are the people I go to with everything, it's like having a barn full of moms, grandmas, and sisters. They've all watched me grow up and are the biggest and greatest support I have and I am grateful for that every day.
Tell us about your horse/ horses/ current ride:
Alot of horses have touched my life and made me the rider I am today and I thank them for their patience and every lesson they taught me. I currently own Panda, a little powerhouse of a pony I was blessed to be given by Legacy Farm in Spokane.
She has come a long way in just under a year and is loving her job teaching riders with the patience of a seasoned school pony. We'll be tearing around jump courses this season if you can spot us! She rocks in pink camo💪🏼🐴 Tell us about your favorite riding experiences:
Theres so many I don't know where to begin. Riding out in Loon Lake this past summer was really fun and I gained alot of experience and did new things (Like saddle starting my first horse!). Learning anything new is always my favorite or overcoming a fear about something. Its not so much my riding but I love helping a young rider with an issue and see them work through it and have it finally click and then just soar from there and achieve their goals, that has to be my absolute favorite.
Describe your best riding achievement:
Having the confidence to put my skills to use and not second guess everything I'm doing. Fear of failure is something I feel alot of people struggle with and in this sport, having that fear only holds you back. Once you let that go, you can only go up and learn from there.
What are your current riding goals:
Get to some shows this season and show off what my little backwoods pony can do!
