Michelle has been involved with horses for 30+ years, and has been raising Appaloosas since 1995. She holds a degree in Equine Studies.
In 2004, Michelle began showing and promoting her Appaloosas at a world-class level.
In 2010, her stallion, “The Miracle Chip” was inducted into the Appaloosa Hall of Fame, and his son, “TC Tommy Boy” carries on his legacy.
The Miracle Chip became the first Appaloosa to win 2-year-old snaffle bit western pleasure titles at the World Championship Appaloosa Show, the Solid Gold Futurity, and the National Appaloosa Horse Show— placing first under all five judges. Retired until 2001, the stallion briefly returned to the show ring, handily winning a reserve World champion title in senior western pleasure. The Miracle Chip has sired 217 ApHC-registered foals, which have earned 3420 performance points, 811.5 halter points, 201 ROMs, 29 bronze medallions, and two silver medallions to date.
Michelle has won numerous awards across the globe in multiple disciplines and through her expertise in breeding quality appaloosas, she has demonstrated her commitment to excellence.
