Krista grew up in Coeur D’Alene Idaho, watching her dad train wild mustangs. Her passion for horses started early, observing the magic unfold as a horse learned to trust a human and bond with them. Krista was always doing something daily with horses from training them, to running barrels, drill team competitions, or leisurely trail rides. Though she loves all horses, the foundation Appaloosa breed is her favorite! She married the man of her dreams, Bryce, in 2009. They have two children, son Colby and daughter AnnJolie. Their children are enjoying learning about horse ownership. Besides horses, her family is very active in all outdoor activities. They love all the seasons that the Pacific Northwest has to offer – fishing or tubing the lakes in the summer and hitting the slopes in the winter.
