My Horse Training Adventures

IAM-&-Smokey-6

I picked strawberries to earn the money to buy my first horse, SugarFoot. When I was twelve I took a four year 4-H course in Gresham, Oregon, learning how to raise, train and show horses.

At fifteen, I began training professionally, starting with the ponies at Meadowland Dairy. I trained horses in Oregon, including a racehorse named Playboy. Then I trained and raced Mr. Sam, who still holds the track record at Paniolo Park at the Parker Ranch in Waimea, Hawaii.

On the Big Island I trained a herd of wild Hawaiian Horses and helped the Paniolos with "problem horses" at Parker Ranch. And I gentle-broke some wild horses in Calgary, Canada, while I was modeling there.

On Maui, my stallion, SunDancer was the Kipahulu stud, and I ran a stable in Olinda.

On Maui I learned show jumping. This is Sunancer and I in our first show in Makawao, Maui:

I learned liberty training with the great Hollywood horse trainer, Denzel Cameron, who came to Maui to train SunDancer to star in the screenplays I wrote for family feature films, StarDancer and Horseman...an Adventure at the Dawn of Time.

I even rode Kalio Kai, (Sea Horse in Hawaiian) a Tropic Killer Whale with 3 inch long teeth!

I've been so blessed, raising and training so many beautiful horses... I love their Spirit and am so grateful for their friendships that have enriched my life!

StarDancer (DA LTD) is my "baby," now.
