Her daughter Lakelyn also shares her love and passion for horses.


Diego started riding when he was 7 years old in Mexico. In 2000, he moved to the United States and joined Yonahlossee Stables until 2003. He worked with many different barns, but came back to Yonahlossee in 2019 where he is now the Maintenance Manager. One of his biggest achievements is his seven-time championship in QH racing. Diego is a jack-of-all-trades, caring for the horses every day needs, as well as assisting in training.
