Meet Katie Shepard of MA, the 13 & Under English Showmanship Champion!

Our second correspondent at ApHC Nationals in Fort Worth, TX , Kelsey Arnold of Norwell, MA, was pretty busy working for her longtime farm while at the show, but managed to find some time to take a few pictures and send us some info about her time during Youth Week!

Kelsey was working for Jettset EnDevers Show Horses while they were showing in Texas, a team that had ten horses and seven youth kids and a crazy week! She said that she really enjoyed her time in Fort Worth, minus catching the usual “horse show crud”, and enjoyed supporting their Youth Team Tournament team “Boston Strong”, who won in the spirit portion of the tournament.

Congrats to all Youth and Amateur exhibitors who competed at the show! This was the first year that ApHC Nationals was held as a joint event with APHA Youth World, showing an enormous love of “spots”. We hope to see you all next year!




Kelsey Arnold is a 2013 graduate of The University of Findlay with bachelors in Western Equestrian and Equine Business Management, and where she competed on the varsity IHSA western team for several years. She grew up in Massachusetts, and enjoys spending time on the lake with her family, working for Jettset EnDevers and ridingĀ  in the all around events.
