Last week, I attended our Area VI Young Rider Summer Camp at Twin Rivers Ranch. I was initially nervous since this would be the first time we would be riding together as the team candidates in front of our coach and other instructors who were brought in for the week, and it would also be the first time that I would exchange more than just smiles and passing greetings with the girls on the team.
Hi! I’m Lisa Takada and I’m representing Area VI at the North American Youth Championships (NAYC) with my horse Wishbone aka “Bones”. I am a first-timer and this year will be my only experience at NAYC as I age out after this season.
