A life long love of horses has taken Shannon many interesting places and given her the opportunity to meet a wide range of people. Having started riding lessons in England at the age of six,then moving back to the U.S. in 1981. After years of showing Hunters and in All-Around divisions on the Quarter Horse Circuit she started trail riding, judging open horse shows and teaching horsemanship at 4-H camp.
A desire to try something new led her to mules and she has been hooked on the long ears ever since. Today she owns three Belgian Draft Mules and one Mammoth Donkey. She trail rides, shows English and Western, rides in parades, packs, drives and will try anything at least once with her mules.
Well the first obstacle of the course was the Teeter Totter! He went right over it like a CHAMP! I was so proud of him! Next was a mattress, no problem. He did the rest of the course with no problem, I was so pleased with him! Competition was steep so we did not place in the Money this time! But we will be working on some stuff for next time!!!
