Dylan's love for horses started when she was 7 at a summer camp. She started taking lessons and learned to ride and compete in English and Western disciplines. Being around horses for 10 years of her life, of course, she enjoys caring for these amazing, beautiful creatures!
She was born and raised here in Wilmington and is a senior at Hoggard High School, where she is also an All-American Cheerleader. She is a flyer and a tumbler. Her favorite season is football! GO VIKES!
When not at cheer or work, you can probably find her in a pottery studio where she makes and sells her own pots! This is a skill she picked up in a ceramics class during my freshman year. She also loves being outdoors hiking or at the beach!
After high school, she hopes to attend Cape Fear Community College to earn an associate degree in science and then continue my studies at UNCW in criminal justice with aspirations of being a forensics investigator!
Denise is originally from Long Island, New York. She moved to Mooresville, NC in 2000 and then relocated to the Wilmington, NC area in March, 2020. Denise has two adult children, Liam who lives in Wilmington, NC and Lorenzo who lives in West Palm Beach, Florida. She loves, admires and respects the equine community.
Denise grew up spending summers in Minnesota on her grandparents 300 acre farm where she learned the importance of dedicated work ethic along side her Grandfather Edward and Grandmother, Barbara. In early 2015, Denise participated in a horse therapy program which re-ignited her interest in returning to an environment which allowed her exposure to spending time with animals, especially horses. In December 2022, Denise joined Reagan Equine as a part time barn assistant. Denise is kind, empathetic, patient, willing to pitch in where needed, eager to learn and seeks the sunshine in any cloud. Denise looks forward to greeting you with a smile and a warm, “Hello".
