Berni has been an avid equestrienne since she was a small child. She grew up competing in 4-H, Open Shows and dabbled some in the local Paint Circuit. Berni also competed on a drill team to a State Championship. She continues to take lessons and clinics for continuing education.
She was the Equestrian Program Coordinator at a local Residential Treatment Center for 5 years where she taught horsemanship to children with severe emotional issues.
Berni has her own children who are active, competitive all-around riders. She is very comfortable starting children on their adventure to becoming life long riders.
Both of Berni's daughters, age 15 &13, are Nationally Accomplished Riders. Between the two of them they hold 15 National Championship titles and 16 Reserve Championship Titles. Audrey, her eldest, is pursuing her dreams of 3 Day Eventing. In 2017 she was the Area VII Champion in Beginner Novice.
Along with helping her children reach their horse showing goals, Berni has also helped coach other children to Local and National Championship wins in several events.
