Stephanie has been riding horses since she was 2 and began teaching horseback riding lessons at the age of 13 at her dad’s home in Euless. She taught horseback riding through High School and while she earned her B.S. at Tarleton State and Sam Houston. She majored in Animal Science and minored in Business, allowing her opportunities to work with some of the best horse trainers and breeders in the barrel racing industry. Upon graduating in 2008, she then returned to the HEB area to continue teaching. Her extreme passion and love of horses is what drives the business of Full Circle. She relishes the opportunity to pass along her love of horses to other children and help them to excel in whatever discipline they choose.

Stephanie currently competes in local barrel races and playdays. She has won numerous checks, buckles, saddles, and various prizes for her skills on horseback over the last 20 years. Stephanie piloted our lesson horse, Pebbles, to be the 2018 APHA Reserve World Champion pole bending horse and top ten for barrels and stakes. She is a CHA-certified instructor and attends various clinics throughout the year. She has a passion for learning something new and is always looking for advanced techniques she can pass along to her students. Stephanie took up Equitation and Hunter/Jumper classes in the English world in summer 2018 and continues to pursue her passion for learning. Long-term goal is to begin showing once all of her kids are a little older.

She has a supportive family with her husband Mike and their four children – Teagan, Presley, Micah, and Brady.
