Ramona has been riding horses since the age of 5 when her dad bought her first pony. Soon after, while taking a riding lesson, a saddlebred entered the arena and from there she was hooked. She has a true passion and love for riding and instructing. She gained her experience and knowledge directly from Karin and her mother, Carolyn Folkers. She likes to call herself Karin’s “wingman”, assisting her both in and out of the show ring. Ramona has had much success as a rider, winning two world’s champion titles with the eye-catching Simply Striking and a reserve world title with CH Keeper of the Stars as well as has made many trips to the winners circle pinning the blue ribbon onto her academy riders.
When not horsing around, Ramona and her husband, Tom, like to vacation in Colorado where their children Tommy and Ally attend college.
