Christi is married to Eric, with 2 children ... Jade and Mark.

Christi started riding as a child and later spent years showing horses around California, but retired from the show  circuit after having children. She is active helping at the local elementary school, local coaching for sports, the 4-H horse program, is a backcountry packer, and is a XanGo distributor.

Christi has a background as a veterinary technician and is the most likely to be seen in the stall if a mare needs an assist during labor. Watch for the long dark blond hair! Eric is often there to help. Eric is also our colt starter.

You may also see Jade or Mark feeding horses or mucking stalls. The family is very active in backcountry packing, mostly in our region of the Sierra Nevada mountain range.
