Rusty Brown Shines On Tori Ramirez!
Rusty Brown Jewelry celebrates the hard work, passion, and dedication it takes to be an equestrian. Over the last 42+ years, Rusty Brown has had the privilege of meeting some of the most talented and hardworking women in the horse industry. Today, Rusty Brown Shines On life-long horsewoman Tori Ramirez for her horsemanship, openness, and dedication to the horse world.Tori Ramirez got her start in the horse world at the ripe old age of 4 when she got her first ponies, CeCe and Ginger. Being young, she had big dreams across many disciplines of riding including becoming a barrel racer, jumper, roper, to compete in rodeo, and to become a jockey. Looking back as an adult she can proudly say she accomplished most of them. And while she never has become a jockey, she has embraced every riding opportunity given to her, including breezing racehorses.
Having dabbled in many different arenas, Ramirez has found her home in the barrel racing and rodeo arenas. She loves the rush of making a fast run with the music blasting and the crowd cheering. She also loves the unique style and training routines that each competitor is able to have, allowing everyone to do what works best for them and their horse. Her passion for running barrels has translated into many successful runs for her as well. Her proudest moment being at the Sherry Cervi Youth Championships in 2018 where she won her first championship saddle for the winning average.Although Ramirez does not come from a wealthy family, they have always been huge supporters of her horsey dreams. This has challenged her to work her way up in the industry, mucking stalls for extra cash and working until it’s dark out to accomplish her goals. It is her willingness to work hard and try new and different things in the horse world that have helped shape her into the successful horsewoman she is today. For Ramirez, it is the opportunity to learn, ride, train and teach every day that keeps her passion alive. And, while she loves the rodeo arena, she fully embraces every new learning opportunity that comes her way. Currently, she is dabbling in shoeing horses, learning the fundamentals of Portuguese riding, and saddle fitting! She feels the best things about the horse world are the opportunities it creates to try new things and the amazing people it has allowed her to meet.
As a dedicated horsewoman who believes strongly in the importance of horsemanship, Ramirez is very honest about the challenges of being a competitive equestrian and working with performance horses. When asked she will tell you “The hardest part would be trying to maintain and keep your horse performing 100% while being free from injury. Whether it's the proper nutrition or hiring a good farrier, I'm willing to get the best for my horse.”
Just as Rusty Brown is proud to Shine On Tori Ramirez, she is proud to Shine In Rusty Brown. “Rusty Brown Jewelry is not just an accessory for me, it is a way to bring my horse with me everywhere I go.
