Team 13: Taylor



I’m Cheryl Taylor from Nebraska.  I have participated in our state’s Trail Time program to set goals for my riding and hold me accountable.  I am a member of the AQHA and APHA ride programs.  My husband and I also enjoy ACTHA Competitive Trail Challenges.


I will be splitting my time between the two paint mares pictured.  Dakota has been my primary trail mount for the last two years.  She is the black and white, blue eyed beauty.  Maybe, the little dun  is the understudy.  I have never tried tracking miles, it will be interesting to see how many we log!
Enjoying the journey!
