Alannah began her love affair with the equine industry at an early age. She began riding at eight years old and has been involved with horses in one capacity or another since then. She expanded her interest in livestock during her high school years by joining the National FFA Organization and showing cattle, sheep, pigs and goats. She was also a member of three State Champion teams in the Livestock Judging, Parliamentary Procedure and Agriculture Sales Career Development Events.
After competing as a member of the Linn-Benton Community College Livestock Judging Team in 2010, Alannah attended Oklahoma State University, where she also completed internships with Judge My Ride, the National Reining Horse Association and Northwest Rider Magazine. While in Oklahoma, she volunteered for Thoroughbred Athletes, Inc., a Thoroughbred adoption program based in Guthrie, Okla. and developed a passion for helping OTTBs. She graduated in December 2013 with a Bachelors of Science in Agricultural Communications and a minor in Agricultural Economics. She currently resides in Wellington, Florida, where she has continued to pursue her equine passion both at work and at play.
