"In the equitation ring, Katie Kramer (Shauna Pennell, trainer) and SS Brando were on a roll. Katie won the LAHJA/LA Saddlery Senior Medal Class and the Foxfield Medal Class. She was also second in the CPHA Foundation Equitation. “I’ve been leasing Brando from Sierra Swaffer since June because she’ll be going away to college at Fresno State,” said Katie. “I had been showing some of Shauna’s horses, but wanted to have more consistency. Brando’s pretty versatile and has a great mind for all the rings.”Since Katie works full-time at a talent agency, she has very little time for riding. “I only get to ride on the weekends,” she revealed. “I make the most out of the time I do have. Shauna’s great about letting me ride three to five horses every time I come out to the barn. I think that riding various horses has helped my riding a lot. In college, I rode in the Intercollegiate Horse Show Association (IHSA) shows, in which you catch ride horses.” As a long time equitation rider, she hopes to eventually transition into the jumper ring."
