Team 37 - Ready to Ride *






Hi my name is Kerri Ross and I live in North Platte , Ne. I am renting a place out in country so I can have all my critters. I live with My awesome Boyfriend Clint who supports my bad animal habit- specifically horses and my crazy riding and dogs My son Kaden shares the love of horses and has his own horse Sonny- and he like to do 4-h and trailride and learning to rope- and lamb 4-h. He also does Football- so he keeps me busy! My daughter is going to college as a freshman this yr so my household is one less most the time- and We have 4 dogs and an indoor cat. Two of my dogs are therapy dogs and we go on visits when we can. Outdoors I have 3 of my own horses and my son has one. Bella ( 11 yr Morgan, Black ) is my main mount for CTR and DD I have a 6 yr palomino mare Gypsy that I do mostly womens Drill team and more trailriding with- she is a rescue- then i HAVE A FRIESIAN x Arabian filly yrling that is also a rescue- she is my CTR and possible endurance prospect- and then we have sonny- a big Quarter horse gelding Palimino. Then we have 2 goats and a lamb. I enjoy riding about as much as I enjoy breathing- That is the reason why I call myself- READY TO RIDE My goal last yr was to be in top ten - and I did it at level 9. This yr was to do more ground training and stay in top ten- Hope to meet some more of you in the yrs to come out on the trail!
