Linda Truscott
I am orginally from Northeastern Pennsylvania.  I moved to Kentucky in 2005.  I currently live on a small farm in Perryville, KY and personally own 4 quarter horses and a paint horse, along with 2 boxer rescue dogs.  As a child I went through the whole 4-H program and then became a leader for many years.  I enjoy riding all 3 seats, Hunt Seat, Saddle Seat and Stock Seat to which I have been very successful in A-rated and select Breed Shows.  I joined the Saddle-Up Safely auxiliary in 2009.

Toma Matott
I am originally from Northern NY. My family and I moved to Kentucky in 2008. We currently live on a small farm in Cynthiana KY which we share with five Appaloosas, two Mini’s, four Boer does and myriad of dogs. We have raised Appaloosas for over 20 years and we still occasionally raise a foal. I have been involved with horses my whole life from trail riding to showing Pleasure and Halter horses. I was a 4-H leader for many years and also was a Merit Badge leader for the Horsemanship Badges for the Boy and Girl Scouts. I was one of the founding members of The Lake Champlain Appaloosa Club and was instrumental in putting together the yearly regional show as well as several fund raisers for the club. My daughter and I have successfully shown our Appaloosas on the regional as well as world level in Halter. I joined the Saddle-Up Safely auxiliary in 2009.
