Julie Renfro-CrossAbout Julie:

In my early teens, I was lucky to have parents that recognized that I needed a horse to coax me out of my shyness. It worked! I was involved in FAA shows and projects with my horse. Early on I competed in Hunter Jumpers, Halter, English and Western Pleasure. As time evolved I found that I wanted to bring out the best in my horses natural talents since I had a variety of breeds and color breed horses.

I’ve had the opportunity to spend countless hours riding with professionals and equestrians that have inspired my continued goals. I have thousands of hours participating in and at Horse Expo’s, seminars and demonstrations. I believe there should be a balance of ground skills as well as riding and a respect for leadership.

What I focus on is the rider riding the whole horse, creating a mental and physical connection. What is helpful is to have goals whether it is in the Western or English disciplines…find what fits you. I have had the good fortune of being mentored by a select few horseman.

I have owned and learned from many breeds of horses. An Arabian horse has been the most consistent breed I have had. I have had a Padron son, Khemosabi ++++// grandson and a son of Maclintock V, “Jamboree V”.  I‘ve found that the Arabian horse is the most versatile breed for what I want. (Cow work, Dressage, Reining and trail riding)

This is where I am attracted to Western Dressage. It takes so many equestrian specialties into account and offers a spirit of encouragement. After all, the competition is between me and my horse, not so much for the ribbon.
