Hi, My name is Maggie and I am 16 years old. I have been riding horses for about 9 years now and own a beautiful 15 year old quarter horse named Dusty. I mainly ride western disciplines and enjoy working on my family farm, fly fishing, and being in the great outdoors. This year I was accepted into the Colorado Extreme Mustang Makeover, and am training an adorable 1  ½ year old mare named Rowan. I am super excited to be a part of BCHAY and meet all the wonderful youth equestrians here in Boulder County!

Hi! I’m Alison Giese, a 17 year old living in Boulder, Colorado.  I’ve been involved with horses since I can remember, but just recently got my own in my freshman year of high school; a wild mustang named Indie that I’ve been training on my own.  Other than Indie i have two other quarter horses that I do anything from jumping to reining and frequent trail rides.  When I’m not out riding I’m usually driving around boulder taking pictures or throwing pottery.

emmaEmma Brown – Director – Committee Chair of Social Media and Communications

Howdy! My name is Emma Brown, and I am a student in Boulder, Colorado. I live on a ranch in Longmont, CO. I quite enjoy ranch work whether it’s mucking, fencing, working new horse, or fixing up the barn. I ride English and Western, but focus primarily on western riding, such as reining, roping and cattle work. I love working with my horse in the arena, but especially love traversing the mountains and enjoying the great outdoors. I am also an amateur photographer/film maker, cadet firefighter, and avid fly fisherman. My goals are to share my knowledge, and inspire others to follow what they truly enjoy doing.
