Debbie lived many years on a farm in Claremore, OK where she rode her horses and enjoyed a country lifestyle within commuting distance of Tulsa, OK.
As a kid, Debbie grew up in Brewster, NY, near New York City, where Debbie's father exported oilfield equipment for his Tulsa clients. In Brewster, Debbie was privileged to ride field hunters at Duhallow Stable and to hunt with Goldens Bridge Hounds. When she moved to Tulsa in 1984 she did hunter-jumper at Landmark Farm in Bixby and dressage at Woodridge Farm in Claremore. Now Debbie is now an armchair rider and a bird watcher.
