Shelby grew up in North Spokane riding horses from a young age. As a young girl she always wanted horses and when she got her first pony she was hooked. She was a member of Pony Club for many years with her Appaloosa mare and started competing in 3-Day Events. After high school she worked as a groom for an Olympic rider competing in 3-Day Eventing. In 2014 she got married and in 2017 she and her husband moved to SouthEast Asia for his job. They recently returned in the spring of 2020 and in October 2020 she joined MPEH. In her free time she enjoys playing with and riding her horses, going on adventures with her husband and their dogs, and spending time with her family.
