Aleshia is the President of Rising Arrow Mounted Archery based out of Albemarle, NC. She and her husband have been married for 3 years and have one dog, seven horses and a spoiled flock of chickens! Horses have been in Aleshia’s life since she was 2 years old. She grew up in a western riding family and participated in Barrel Racing, Team Penning, Trail Riding, and Horse Shows were almost every-weekend way of life. Aleshia also had the privilege of working with handicap children for 11 years at a Dr. Eddin’s horse farm teaching them about horses and watching them discover the great joy of relating to a horse. It gave her the opportunity to learn English riding and driving as well. In 2009, Aleshia purchased her forever partner, Sampson, and discovered natural horsemanship. Together Sampson and Aleshia learned how to work as a team to become partners in their endeavors. Together, Aleshia and Sampson won buckles for Western Pleasure Championships in 2017 & 2018. In 2016, the pair discovered mounted archery and were hooked from day one. Aleshia says it was like a missing puzzle piece in their life, it just fit right in.
