Sport/Disciplines: Para-Equestrian

Kate Shoemaker manages a private 10-stall dressage barn in Peoria, Ariz., and rides two to three horses per day. Shoemaker rides in Grade IV competitions due to white matter lesions from periventricular ischemia causing motor control dysfunction, muscle weakness, and spasms on the right side of her body. She compensates for the loss of three planes of motion control in her ankle with an ankle foot orthosis (brace) and uses special rein stops for added rein control. With multiple top finishes in CPEDI3* competition in 2018, Shoemaker was named to her first FEI World Equestrian Games™ U.S. Para-Equestrian Dressage Team.
