Hi, I'm Pamela and I live in Oakland, TN, where I own and operate Oakhaven Stables. My love of horses was shared with my father as a young girl. He was a field trial enthusiast, and we rode TN Walking Horses to follow bird dogs. The rest is history…I have always had gaited horses. Moving to TN only caused this appetite to grow. I have shown my Walkers flat shod and enjoy trail riding/camping. The last couple years I have enjoyed trail obstacle challenges and I'm hoping to compete in Working Equitation in the near future. My favorite activity is to show the versatility of the gaited horse.
My name is Julia Whitehead and I am a 17 year old from Collierville, TN. I have been riding and training horses for 5 years. I currently own a Quarter Horse mare and an Off-Track Thoroughbred gelding, who I re-trained for the Retired Racehorse Project’s thoroughbred makeover last year. I enjoy working with all kinds of horses, but am especially drawn to the ones who are green, untrained, or labeled as “problem” horses. READ MORE
Hello everyone my name is Kevin Little. My love of horses came from my beautiful wife Rachel Little who will also be participating in this challenge. Horses to me are amazing and spiritual creatures that always deserve a chance to prove themselves and their capabilities. During the day I'm a truck driver, but when I get home I get to spend time with the family working on our farm and training/riding our horses. 2 years ago I began working with a mentor on starting colts under saddle and that has really shown me how willing horses really are and how privileged we are to ride them.
Hello! My name is Delaney, I am a 16 year old from Brandon, MS. I have been working in the horse world since 2016, and own two wonderful mares that I use in both English and Western Events. In addition to my own horses, I like to act as a catch rider for others to get experience in with a variety of breeds and disciplines.
My name is Michele Sandifer and I am a Certified Facilitator for Equine Assisted Learning- what that means is that people work with and learn from my horses to help themselves become the best they can be. I have a degree in education and taught in the classroom for many years, but am so glad to be able to teach now outside of the classroom with my horses. I also teach horseback riding lessons and compete a little myself on some of my horses. I currently have 8 horses, 2 donkeys, 11 dogs and some barn cats. I live in Liberty, MS and have a son who works for Craig and Cole Cameron in Texas. READ MORE
My riding journey began when I was just a horse crazy kid about 21 years ago. In that time, I’ve had the opportunity to ride and compete on a variety of breeds of horses in an even wider variety of disciplines. However, some of my favorite memories on horseback were made out on the long trail alongside my husband and our friends that we are fortunate enough to have met through our shared love of horses.
