    More about Crystal

    From an early age Crystal wanted to be outside, exploring the environment and spending time with animals. For several years she expressed a desire to be a veterinarian who specialized in equine medicine.

    While a student at North Central College Crystal worked as a horse trainer in multiple disciplines including hunter jumper, dressage, reining, cutting, and polo. She graduated with her A.A.S. specializing in Equine Science in 1999. Then her desire to travel and spend time outdoors overruled the desire to become an Equine Surgeon.

    She made the decision to accept a position with a public relations firm in Washington D.C.  After a year and a half with the public relations firm, Crystal returned to working with horses. Both during college and after her time with the public relations firm Crystal distinguished herself as an accomplished equestrian trainer.

    She trained horses for several prestigious horse ranches in Texas and Oklahoma including a 4-time World Champion Cutting Horse Facility, and a United States Polo Association Certified Umpire.
