Hey there I’m Natalie! My paint horse Frankie and I joined the California Cowgirls mid 2016. I grew up in Benicia, CA and have been riding since I was four years old, mostly training and showing Arabians until college.
In 2013, I saw a drill team perform at the Cow Palace and said to my Mom, “I want to do that!” Well two years later, I moved to Wilton and shortly after, applied to the team. We found ourselves a spot the following year and love every minute. When I’m not performing with the team, I work as a Registered Dental Hygienist full time, have a small leather business at home and my fiance and I run an up and coming cattle operation.
I feel incredibly blessed to be on this team, these wonderful ladies are a second family. And I could not ask for a better horse to share this passion with than Frankie, he is my heart horse. Also having family in the Armed Forces, I am very proud to carry the American flag into that arena, as well as a Military flag. Bringing patriotism and some western heritage into the spotlight is an honor!
