Dedication and Horsemanship - Company Message

Head Trainer
Nikki Husky

        Many wise people say that the passion for horses is in your blood.  I     
        believe I was born with a special gene that makes you want to live   
        and breathe horses.  

         I grew up riding in Southern California starting at age 5. It is popular  
         opinion that the riding bug got a hold of me as soon as I was born. 
         Some of my mom's first words to me were you will ride and you will 
         love it. Little did she know that my love of horses would rival hers 
         and we really were in it for the long haul.

         At age 10 I embarked on my first horse deal.  I wrote an ad on the  
         internet requesting a pony with no vices, auto lead changes, and 
         emphasizing that it would go to a good home. A judge in Northern 
         California contacted my family asking about the ad. This response 
         led me to the pony that would be known as Seeing is Believing. We 
         went on to compete successfully in the 2001 National Pony Medal 
         Finals.
 
After I sold my pony, I catch rode many horses until at age 13 
  it was time to scour the country for an equitation horse.
 It was incredibly educational for me to travel to Canada,   
 Holland, and  all over the United States to try various horses. I    
 had a  number of wonderful equitation rides throughout my  
  junior years. A couple of those mounts were the type of  
  horses that could breathe confidence into you and take you to 
  the top ranks (Time to Believe and Altobelli). 

   At the age of 16 I realized that I wanted to explore the   
   training  aspect of the sport. I enjoy working with kids so I   
   started as a Pony Camp Counselor.  Finding out that I    
   loved teaching, I  started working for Cha Cha Jago of 
  Jigsaw Farms.  I was incredibly lucky to obtain some rides on the clients’ horses and had great success in  
  the Hunters and Jumpers aboard  those mounts.

    While working for Jigsaw Farms, I attended Pepperdine   
      University and received my Multiple Subject Teaching  
      Credential.  Graduated with Bachelor of Arts in Liberal Studies 
      with a Spanish Concentration.

      Working at Jigsaw Farms for seven years gave me the  
      foundation I needed to branch out on my own. As I formed 
      Husky Stables, I knew that I wanted to focus on having a 
      small business.  

    I am a USHJA Certified Trainer.  I always find opportunities 
    to continue my education and attend as many clinics as  
     possible.
