I have been riding horses my whole life. My dad has owned Sunset Trails for fourteen years and I have been teaching horse riding lessons for over 10.
Currently I am student at the University of Kansas. In my free time I enjoy barrel racing and helping others improve their barrel racing skills. The picture is me in a barrel race on Cash.
My name is Kate Davis and I am 17 years old. I have been riding since I was 5 years old and I own a horse named Huck. Together, we competitively compete every weekend in the summer in rodeos and barrel runs. Huck is 13 years old and is an American Quarter Horse. Outside of horses, I enjoy photography and art. I am also the club president of Sunset Trails' very own 4-H club. I will be going to college to get my Bachelor's degree in nursing and I plan to become a Labor and Delivery nurse!

I have two amazing horses named Trinity and Tigger. I love eventing and show jumping on Tigger and I enjoy playing around and having fun on Trinity.
One of my favorite things to do besides riding is taking photos of horses.

I show jump with a horse named John and I have a pleasure horse named CJ, that’s him in the picture! I enjoy riding both English and Western. I also participate in Sunset Trails 4-H with many of the other girls at this barn and others, you should check it out!
I am obsessed with cows, who isn’t, and Ranch Sorting is one of CJ and I's favorite hobbies.
I come from a big family of seven and my dream is to run a Ranch of my own someday. I learned how to ride when I was only seven right here at Sunset Trails.
I learned how to ride at Sunset Trails about 5 years ago and now I get to teach kids about horses and how to ride them!
