About the Team: 

Amber and Sleepy have been a team for several years now. Amber shares, "Sleepy has changed my riding career. I wouldn’t be where I am today without the help of my parents and great coaches who found me this awesome horse."

Currently Amber is proud of how they've kicked things off in the Amateur events, "Sleepy has continued to try his best and be a rockstar this year, I couldn’t have asked for a better start to my amateur career."
