Team 77 – Cross C

Janet

My name is Janet Caul from Blair, Nebraska. I am a riding instructor specializing in beginners and those with fear issues.  I have been an instructor/trainer for over 30 years working under the name Cross C Equine Services. 

I currently own two horses; Rocky and Daijon, however, my main ride for the Derby will be my new steed Rocky, but I do have 2 other reliable mounts with Daijon and my former lesson horse, Prince. 

I broke my back about three years ago so this Derby will be the true test of healing, not only mind, but the body, too. I look forward to putting on some serous miles as I haven’t been able to do much trail riding over the last few years. It is on 2013 so I can check some things off my bucket list!

    we rode alone in between lessons; temp was 22; bitter cold in the barn. We did a lot of stopping/talking hence the l-o-n-g time. I'm inching my way along! I will celebrate when I make 1 mile :-)
