Kelsey has lived in Spokane for the majority of her life. She knew from a young age that horses were her passion, and began learning to ride and jump at the age of seven. She showed in the hunter/jumper world for a large portion of her childhood, and spent some time in various Western disciplines as well. Kelsey stuck with her love for horses all the way through college – she obtained her degree in Equine Science from Montana State University, where she also participated in and was a TA for numerous horsemanship classes. Kelsey also showed on the IHSA Hunt Seat team at MSU for three years, and got several opportunities to learn and ride under accomplished horsemen and women all over the country. In her free time, she enjoys fishing, hiking, riding horses, and spending time with friends and family. Kelsey joined the MPEH team in September of 2020, and loves getting to pursue her passion and continue learning every day.
