On Episode Five of the Cutting Edge we sit down with Elizabeth Quirk, NCHA Non Pro Rider of the Year and 2018 Non Pro World Champion.
We talk everything from Quirk's success as a youth competitor, she was the 2007 Youth World Champion, to the great horses that have made up illustrious career now - including KD Shorty, the Kit Dual mare that amassed over $200,000 in earnings and has gone on to be a top producer. Quirk talks how special the mare was to her and despite her passing in 2017, the legacy that continues because of her.
We delve into 2018, what her goals were, and where the year took her. Quirk mentions this particular run as one of her favourites, and it certainly is one to watch. After listening to the podcast be sure to watch Quirk and Kattalyst capture the Non Pro Champion title at the Calgary Stampede Mercuria.
Finally, Quirk's successes haven't slowed down in 2019, she captured both the 40 Non Pro in August and then the Non Pro title at the Houston Livestock Show and Rodeo, so we chat this year, and where the road may... or may not be... taking her.
