Sport Specific Information
When and where did you begin this sport? He first rode horses as a child at his grandfather's farm in Sussex County, NJ, United States of America. He began riding competitively at age 13.
Why this sport? He developed his passion for equestrian growing up on his grandfather's farm. ''I had a barn in my backyard. My parents purchased the farm as a business venture, so the barn could help pay the mortgage. Although they had no interest in riding, my grandfather had horses and really loved them so it was kind of fate that I should end up riding.''
