Since late 2012, we have had the opportunity to work with AQHA Professional Horsewoman Jodi Mallette, and her fantastic group of clients. This month, we are excited to features one of Jodi’s youth riders, and her great achievements.
Carly Epp – PF Shy Guy
Carly has been training with Jodi for 6 years, and started with PF Shy Guy “Gery” as a 3 year old in 2009. This young gelding was purchased from Rapley Show horses after being stared in pleasure as a 2 year old.
Carly and Gery won their way to the top of several OQHA youth titles in 2012 including Youth Trail Champion, and Youth Western Pleasure Champion. As well, their Area 3 list of Championships led them to win the Youth 14-18 High Point Award.
The team then went and added a Congress Championship to their list of accomplishments in 2012. They took home the championship in Novice Youth Trail 14-18, and placed 7th in Novice youth showmanship.
In 2013, after qualifying for and attending the AQHYA World show, Carly and Gery went on to bring home a Top 20 from the 2013 AQHA Congress in Western Riding.
With a youth show career this exciting, it is not hard to believe that Carly is now representing the Texas Christian University on their Equestrian Team.
We wish you much luck in your upcoming events!
