An equestrian person I was not, in fact, I always felt that although horses are beautiful creatures they were also big and scary. Three years ago, my perception changed and my love for the equestrian community grew. My daughter, then 7 years old, told me she wanted to learn how to ride a horse. I signed her up for lessons and her first official horse show was at CCWC in 2015 where she performed lead line speed. Ever since that day WE were hooked. I'm very supportive, admire her love for animals and aim to help her grow and succeed in the equestrian arena. I am detailed oriented and very organized and look forward to serving as the Secretary for CCWC.
Carroll County Western Circuit
I've always enjoyed participating in events at the Carroll County Western Circuit. It has given my buddy Brahvo and I the opportunity to try everything from Western Pleasure to Hunter Over Fences. CCWC has been a place to gain confidence, try new things, and meet some awesome people who are passionate about their horses. It was time to step up and give back. This year, I am excited and honored to work with an amazing Board of Directors to bring some fresh ideas to the organization. Wishing all of the members a safe, fun and exciting 2019 CCWC season!!
I was very blessed to grow up on a horse farm in Howard County, MD. Horses run in my family's blood. As a result, I now own my own farm, Sunset Valley Farm, LLK, located in Union Bridge, MD. I'm fortunate to raise my own children as well as teach other children/adults how to ride and love horses. I have been on the CCWC BOD in the past and am happy to be returning for the 2019 show season. I look forward to continuing to build a happy, safe atmosphere for families to come and enjoy showing their horses.

Kelly Timms has lived in Carroll County her entire life, save the four years spent at The University of Findlay. Kelly and her husband, Fred, have been married just over a year. In addition to two horses, they have a German Shepard, Sam, and a treeing-walker Coonhound, Echo. When she is not involved at work, Kelly enjoys fishing, travel, and most of all – horse time.
I remember praying on my knees at about 5 years old for a pony. I bought my first pony on my own from a paper route job at 13 years old. We will just say 25+ years later and i'm still playing with ponies! I own The Pony Place in Mt. Airy. Birthday parties, a small lesson and lease program and an amazing bunch of kids dedicated to showing, keep me going! We LOVE to be safe, be smart, work hard and have fun!! I am super excited to be a part of the 2019 CCWC Board and look forward to family fun, beautiful grounds and good people.

This year celebrates 10 years that Jennifer has been involved with CCWC. She began showing back in 2009 with her first quarter horse "Ima Daddys Big Gurl" and continue to show with her other show horse "Gucci Gucci Goo" and now more recently the past few years with "Our Last Invitation" aka Wyatt. Jennifer has enjoyed being part of the club as an exhibitor, volunteer and serving in many leadership roles. Jennifer is the Vice President for the new 2019 season and is beyond excited for the new season. Jennifer is looking forward to showing at CCWC this year after a major setback between her horse getting hurt at the beginning of the year and then her unfortunate broken ankle it's in the middle of the season. She is very passionate about the club and what it has been able to do not only for her, but for many other exhibitors over the years. She has enjoyed seeing the infectious smiles that illuminate when people are in the show ring and giving it their best. The sense of community is a wonderful thing among the horse world especially the CCWC family!
