As a high school sophomore, I shook off thoughts of college, preferring to think of it as in the far and distant future. Why? Because I feared leaving behind what I have and having to look forward toward a place that represents the great unknown.
But on Jan. 18-20 in Wellington, Fla., the College Preparatory Invitational allowed me to see that I don’t have to leave my horses or riding in the past. I can continue to ride and compete at a high level in college.
