Horse: Dystinctive aka Dizzy – Passed away in December, but lives on in Chloe's heart
Chloe was a 2-year-old toddler when she first sat in a saddle; her parents knew right
away they had a promising horseman on their hands! During the following 11 years this precocious equestrian has
done it all, from simple trail riding, western team penning to dressage and even jousting.
"My passion is hunter/jumper. In 2011, I was the Bronze winner for the USHJA Outreach
Medal and the Junior Hunter Challenge Champion for the Southeast Region," Chloe shared.
These accolades are somewhat bittersweet for Chloe; sadly, this past December her best
friend and partner, Dizzy, succumbed to melanoma.
were green to hunter competition when they met four years ago, but each taught the other lessons about trust,
self confidence and success. The devotion to and education from Dizzy's care has
inspired Chloe's two biggest life goals: to become an equine surgeon to aid the
other Dizzys in the horse world and to represent the USA in the Olympics.
still hard, but I know he's still with me in my heart. And when I take my victory
lap at the Olympics, I will be scattering some of Dizzy's ashes around the arena,
to remember that he won too!"
Chloe has put the lessons and passion shared with Dizzy into all the aspects
of her equestrian life. She has been a devoted member of the 4-H organization
since age eight and currently serves as the president of her local club.
"I'm also proud to be a member of many other organizations including USHJA.
I've participated in Horse Bowl and Horsemanship Standards through 4-H, and I
find the Horsemanship Quiz Challenge program really similar. I love everything
about horses! I think this new program is a great opportunity to improve myself
both as a rider and owner of horses, as well as increase my knowledge to help
me with my future goals in life," Chloe shared.
Chloe's new role as a HQC Ambassador demonstrates her belief that the
more you know about horsemanship, the more you grow as an equestrian and
caregiver. "I really hope to inspire a lot of people to join this program."
