Elizabeth Enderle

By Kasey Bubnash

She's not the first in her family to love horses, but incoming Santa Ynez High School sophomore Elizabeth Enderle shows them like no one else can.

Elizabeth, 15, has been riding horses since she was a child, but started competitively showing only about three years ago, according to her mom, Kerry Enderle. And she's already making waves.

Although Elizabeth originally trained as a hunter rider and competed in the Hunter Pleasure division, she recently switched to Western Pleasure, a riding style that Kerry said requires an entirely different skill set. After only a few months training, Kerry said Elizabeth was crowned the 18 and under champion of the Region 2 Championship Arabian Horse Show at the Earl Warren Showgrounds in mid-June. 

Elizabeth won, Kerry said, showing a horse that was bred and raised by Elizabeth's grandparents. Elizabeth plans to compete again come fall.
