Debra is a riding instructor and
trains students to ride & compete in
equestrian shows. Her ponies and
horses are well trained and seek to
please. Riders very much enjoy
their time with Debra and the
Debra has been on, and around, horses all her life. Under the tutelage of father and
grandfather, she has learned how to handle a horse. Barrel racing, queen contests, play-
days, western pleasure events, horse shows and miles of trails summarize her younger
years. Dressage and reining are her present passion.
A few years ago, one of her students’ parents asked if she
provided ponies for parties. Another asked if she had small
animals for a petting zoo. Pat is the entreprenurial type,
and together they started the Pony Party, Petting Zoo &
Pony Portrait service businesses.
