Our  Close-Up focus falls upon West Wind rider Emma Sanchez. Emma has been a familiar face at West Wind for several years. Emma has developed into quite the rider since her Walk-&-Trot days, when she showed Lady Gabriella between 2008-2012. During the latter part of that period, Emma and Lady Gabriella moved into Junior Exhibitor Three-Gaited Pleasure.


It was in 2011 that Emma also made her entry into the Junior Exhibitor Three-Gaited division with CH Heathermoor’s Prince and in that same year she also took a turn in Junior Exhibitor Five-Gaited Pleasure aboard CH Stonewall’s Stargate, who was a standout performer for Emma’s mom, Stefanie, for years. She performed well with all of those horses and even claimed a World’s Championship tricolor with Heathermoor’s Prince in 2013.


It all seemed to be preparing her for her present mount, CH He’s In Style, with whom she made her first show in late 2013 and has campaigned for full seasons since. They grabbed five wins in seven classes in 2014 before posting nine wins in 2015, including a qualifying blue at Louisville..This year, it has been more of the same, with double wins at J.D. Massey, Asheville, Midwest, Lexington and North Carolina State Championship, with a Louisville blue and reserve tricolor sandwiched in between.
