Born and raised in British Columbia, Holly was first introduced to horses at the age of 2 by her father. At the age of 6, she was given her first horse from a family friend and she hasn’t looked back. Most of the riders in her community had an interest in western riding such as barrel racing and team penning. Holly spent several years riding both western and English disciplines and then at 12 years old she started competing eventing and show jumping. She executed all of these disciplines on the same horse that she was given as a gift at 6 years old.
