About Shelby

Shelby grew up on a small farm in San Diego, CA. Sparked by her passion for animals, she joined 4-H and later FFA, where she raised and showed numerous species of livestock and small animals. Additionally, Shelby competed in western performance events with her horses and became heavily involved in the sport of polo in high school. While attending California Polytechnic State University, in San Luis Obispo, CA (Cal Poly SLO), Shelby continued to play polo on the university's team, and groomed for multiple clubs and players across the state. In 2016 she graduated with a bachelor's degree in dairy science, and then joined the equine spectacle Cavalia Odysseo. After touring North America as a veterinary technician for a year, Shelby left the show to join the CSU equine sports medicine team. In her free time, she enjoys riding and caring for her horses and hanging out with her two labradors.
