Vanessa Michels -
of you that don't know me, my name is Vanessa Michels. I am
fortunate to be married
to a wonderful man, Gregg,
who supports me in this crazy sport. Hoping to see him in
show pen this year.
Although I did not grow
up with horses I was that little girl that always wanted a
horse of my own.
Noted by my copy of Black Beauty that
is very dog eared. I was a young mother when I bought my
first horse. I loved trail riding and still do. I was
looking for a sport to keep my horse legged up
winter and was given the opportunity to ride a cutting
horse. That was all it took. Its been my
ever since. Cutting can be a very humbling experience, but
when that great run happens
there is nothing like that
rush of being one with your horse.
