As a young child, Monica was mesmerized by every horse she saw and had to ride it! At the age of seven, her family decided it was time for her to start taking lessons. Learning in every style, she realized that slow and steady was not her niche.
Yearning for a faster pace, she began with sorting and team penning and then moved to barrel racing at the age of 10. By the age of 14, she had added roping to the mix. She has picked up multiple 1D/2D Barrel Earnings and a RBCO Championship in Breakaway. Monica has earned multiple Highpoint Buckles to her trophy case and a OHSET District Flag Championship and an Interstate Reserve Flag Championship.
She aims to influence the rodeo community as a whole to always put its best foot forward. As many rodeo athletes, she dreams of the bright lights of Vegas. Working with a company such as Team Equine, that takes each individual order into careful consideration, and being part of sharing the knowledge of what these products can do for equine athletes has been empowering and uplifting. Having the desire to only be involved in companies that provide a sense of community, she feels right at home with Team Equine.
Upon using Team Equine saddle pads, she now has saddles that actually fit. The pads have aided in some money earnings and a few championships. With their custom fitting, she prefers and suggests others to create a saddle pad for your saddle and your horse.
